It isn't included because it doesn't work with the new firewire stack in
2.6.22 and going to the new one makes a lot of sense security wise as
far as I understand it.  It is now up to the user space tools to learn
to work with the new firewire stack, which is unfortunately taking much
longer that I would have imagined.
