(The copy_config_rom call was not actually executed; the else branch
jumped to 44.)

ohci->next_config_rom is NULL because ohci->config_rom is NULL.

No, this code handles multiple versions of the same data structure.

Indeed; this appears to be the culprit:

With the "bad self ID", bus_reset_work() just aborts, and the controller
is never completely initialized (therefore the unexpected NULL).

Try unloading and reloading the firewire-ohci module to see if you can
ever avoid the "bad self ID" error. But if it stays, your hardware
indeed appears to be broken.
