It only was fwx on some older systems, for which the built-in to KeyLargo
FireWire controller doesn't work.  On these systems, there's an extra
(separate chip) FireWire controller, called fwx, _and_ the internal
(but disabled) controller, called fw.

And yaboot config is a pain anyway.  Whoever decided to model it after
lilo config needs a bit of punching (hi Benjamin ;-) )
