Discover-data has the following for Ricoh controllers:

        11800522        unknown unknown R5C522 IEEE 1394 Controller
        11800551        unknown unknown R5C551 IEEE 1394 Controller
        11800552        unknown unknown R5C552 IEEE 1394 Controller

Can you provide lspci -n output too, so we can see which of these is
your controller, and make it load ieee1394.

FWIW, my firewire controller is this:

00:13.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB21 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)
00:13.0 Class 0c00: 104c:8026

Listed in discover1-data as:

        104c8026        unknown unknown TSB43AB21 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link)

I can load ieee1394 and it finds the controller, I have no firewire
stuff to test further. discover1-data seems to have a lot of firewire
controllers that are listed as "unknown" and so load no module. I don't
know if the procedure is to wait for a report from a user for each
before turning it on, or what.

If discover can find the controller, then loading the rest of these
modules can be taken care of by hw-detect or something.
