Description of problem:
The kernel is having a hard time recognizing external FireWire drives.
everything works fine under RedHat 9, however under fedora (and all other
rawhide 2.4.22 kernels that I tested with Redhat 9), firewire drives are not
recognized. I am able to get it to sometimes recognize one of the firewire
drives on the chain by booting with the PCMCIA firewire card removed, then
inserting it once the system is totally booted,and running the recommended
rescan-scsi-bus.sh script from linux1394.org web site.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot fedora core test2
2. firewire drives are not present (/dev/sda)
3. try rescan-scsi-bus.sh, it hangs (looks like infinite loop)
Actual Results: no firewire drives /dev/sda, /dev/sdb are available
