Considering that no discussion has happened on the -firewire list, nor
does there appear to be any active PRs tracking this, I think it's a bad
idea to remove the sbp.  If someone spends the time to properly file a
bug report, then we can tie the reinclusion of sbp to fixing the PR.
If we disabled everything that hangs on one or two systems, we wouldn't
have many devices in the kernel.

The closest bug I could find that relate to this issue is kern/97208.
The last activity on this bug was over two years ago, so clearly not
many people are reporting the issue to the propler places (-firewire
or PR database).
