Last modified: 2014-08-31 19:28:54 EDT

Because of an error in the firewire backport (current upstream uses a function that is not in 2.6.18) attempting to remove the firewire module ("rmmod firewire_ohci") may hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
rmmod never returns, and can't be kill -9'd
The proposed fix is acceptable to upstream and will be included in future firewire versions.
