I don't compile firewire into kernel now.  I used to have this kind of
problem before, and nothing I could do about it.  Now I just kldload
firewire when I need it, and kldunload it when I don't need it.  If
this kind of problem occurs, just unload and reload the firwire
module.  Remember, unload other dependent kernel modules.

Typically I'll use

  > kldload /modules/firewire.ko
  > kldload /modules/sbp.ko

If want to unload them:

  > kldunload sbp.ko
  > kldunload firewire.ko

Hope this helps.
