What you can do is update your 1394 code with some of the more
recent patches in the linux-1394-devel mailing list and try if it
My kernel include one of the ohci1394.c "fixes" for powerbook, Ira's
one, which worked well with the only FW device I have to test with
(an SBP2 disk with LSI chipset) and a few other people's as well.
I don't have the HW nor the time to test every combination, I'd suggest
bringing this discussion on the linux-1394 lists where it belongs
and see if some of the proposed patches helps.
I'd be glad to include a new version of the code in my kernel
if you say it works better for you.
