Yes, it seems to help. If I boot up and modprobe the driver with
toshiba=1, everything looks fine (I have no firewire devices to test
with). If I modprobe it with toshiba=0, the system gets sluggish for a
second then IRQ 11 is disabled. I had to update the patch though, as
shown below.

I'm not sure if the fix is proper though, maybe this should be handled
as a PCI quirk of this Toshiba board instead? Either way, some kind of
fix should make it in soon, ideally to 2.6.14 or
