Yes, we talk about two implementations. Also both implementations are
written by me. The former one is designed for socket basis API for
firewire. I have once proposed with the former version. Unfortunately,
FreeBSD folks did not accept it. The socket mechanism was pnly one
reason, in that time. However, noone supported this version, and also
I have no intention to use socket I/F for firewire.So, I offered with the
Anyway, I cannot find any advantage to merge it. If FreeBSD folks
support the former version, someone will maintain it.
BTW, my USENIX paper based on the former one, and I can
write an updated paper, if necessary.
