[git pull] FireWire updates post 2.6.30, the rest

Linus, please pull from the for-linus branch at

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/ieee1394/linux1394-2.6.git for-linus

to receive the following IEEE 1394/ FireWire subsystem updates.
The shortlog says it all --- drivers/firewire gains IPv4 support and is
no longer considered experimental.

The "new" firewire stack is now preferable over the older ieee1394 stack
*except for audio devices* (FireWire audio devices for sound studios,
driven by the FFADO + Jack userspace framework), and for FireWire DVB
boxes driven by the firedtv kernel driver (to be adapted to the new
firewire stack RSN). Distributors who like to utilize the enhanced
features, performance, and security of the new stack but also want to
support pro/ semi-pro FireWire audio and FireWire DVB too can easily
package both the old and the new stack. Some more info is provided via
the Kconfig help text.

The code in this form has been in linux-next for merely a week, even
though the bulk of it was supplied to linux1394-devel in May. Sorry for
my being slow to line it up.
