Actually ATrpms already has the "old" ieee1394 module support as kmdl
for the RHEL5 kernel (anyone want to use RHEL5/clones insted of F7?

Doing the same for F7 would not be that hard, but I would need a
volunteer that would want to keep it up to date, as it probably means
new source cut for each minor kernel jump. It would also make sense
for that volunteer(s) to coordinate with ezplanet.

Whoever is interested please come over to atrpms-devel list to refine
