New Firewire Stack for Maverick

Registered by Leann Ogasawara on 2010-04-06

Enable the new firewire stack. The old stack (ieee1394, ohci1394, raw1394, sbp2, eth1394 etc) will be black listed and the new stack (firewire-core, firewire-ohci, firewire-sbp2, firewire-net) will be enabled by default. We will still ship the old stack as a fall back for users who encounter unforeseen problems with the new stack. The old stack has several issues that will not be fixed by upstream but (is already or) will be addressed in the new stack.
