When I was fixing bug kern/82727:
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=kern/82727, I found we use
fwe(Ethernet over FireWire) in GENERIC kernel, not fwip(IP over FireWire).
But we all know that IP over FireWire is more widely used on other OSes, and
now this bug is fixed, do we need change fwe to fwip?
I talked it with Tai-hwa Liang, he agrees with me. But he suggests me to
post here for more advices, since there might be some considerations such
like backward compatibility or code size that makes re@ made this decision.
Please give you advice or opinion.
