The case of two 1394 driver stacks isn't fully comparable. I supported
the addition of the second stack with the intent to replace the existing
one after a transition period, and in the hope that the ratio of
available maintainer manpower : size and complexity of the codebase
would improve considerably. Because that was/is the single fundamental
problem in Linux 1394 driver land.

(Besides, how well is infrastructure like the suspend--resume framework
comparable to drivers?)
