Just a clue for those folks who saw the 4.8 announcement say
"Firewire support" but wanted to know how to get it to happen. You
need to recompile the kernel with the following two lines in your
device firewire # Firewire bus code
device sbp # SCSI over Firewire (Requires scbus and da)
(Found this in the LINT file, but not in GENERIC).
I compiled this, tossed in a generic Firewire card, and it worked
first time, adding the attached hard drive as device da0.
