ieee1394if -- IEEE1394 High-performance Serial Bus
ieee1394if* at fwohci?
NetBSD provides machine-independent bus support and raw drivers for
The ieee1394if driver consists of two layers: the controller and the bus
layer. The controller attaches to a physical bus (like pci(4)). The
ieee1394if bus attaches to the controller. Additional drivers can be
attached to the bus.
Up to 63 devices, including the host itself, can be attached to a
IEEE1394 bus. The root node is dynamically assigned with a PHY device
function. Also, the other IEEE1394 bus specific parameters, e.g., node
ID, cycle master, isochronous resource manager and bus manager, are
dynamically assigned, after bus reset is initiated. On the ieee1394if
bus, every device is identified by an EUI 64 address.

The ieee1394if driver first appeared in FreeBSD 5.0, as firewire. It was
added to NetBSD 4.0 under its present name.
The ieee1394if driver was written by Katsushi Kobayashi and Hidetoshi
Shimokawa for the FreeBSD project. It was added to NetBSD 4.0 by
