Well it would have to be testing for data since resets are just
as likely to stop the FireWire from working as to make it work.
Really someone should look closely at the Linux driver and
figure out why the first reset usually doesn't work, on OS X
a reset usually works (they do one whenever a program using
firewire exits, so their implementation has its own problems.)
