well is also against old 2.6.22, check out the other bug reports
2.6.23 has latest firewire trunk and bug reporters are happy.
checkout 2.6.23 trunk snapshot builds

what are you insinuating?!
see discussions on #441206, #441179 and switch announcement

no complete wrong perspective.
the old stack had a numerous nr. of problem and is disabled due to
security concerns. also userspace has to adapt itself to the new stack.
fedora 7 released 1/2 a year ago with the new stack and so did fedora 8.
i agree that the juju stack is not yet feature complete, but improved
already quite a lot since 2.6.22 inclusion.
if you want to contribute test latest and holler upstream
if that is not working - like #435062
