    Subject[GIT PULL] FireWire updates post 2.6.24
    Linus, please pull from the for-linus branch at

    git:// for-linus

    to receive the following IEEE 1394/ FireWire subsystem updates. Once
    again it is almost all about bug fixes. Most notable are David Moore's
    fixes for isochronous reception which greatly enhance the new firewire
    stack's usability in the IIDC domain (uncompressed video from industrial
    cameras and webcams). The storage driver firewire-sbp2 received some
    attention too, prompted by user reports, but that's an ongoing story.

    I let self-discipline slide this time and added 9 patches which have not
    yet been in -mm and were not listed in the "What's in linux1394-2.6.git?"
    report from January 17. Half of those are bug fixes from November which
    have been laying around waiting for last touch-up until we noticed in
    January that they indeed address a good number of bug reports. The other
    new additions are bug fixes too. Everything has been intensively tested
    with affected and unaffected hardware.

    Updated status of the new (still EXPERIMENTAL) drivers/firewire
    - integration with userspace libraries still with rough edges,
    - DV reception broken on OHCI 1.0 variants of VIA VT630x,
    - IP over 1394 still not implemented/ ported,
    - SBP-2 (storage) fragile during hotplugging on some setups.

    Before distributors of kernel packages consider to enable the new
    firewire drivers in parallel or instead of the classic ieee1394 drivers,
    we ask that they first read up about all the caveats of the new drivers
    at which we regularly update.

    I will re-post the newly added patches in a reply. Stat and shortlog of
    the entire queue:
