Looking at this link, it doesn't match the described issue.  Mikhail's
machine would not boot *until* he disabled the firewire controller in
the BIOS.  

The referenced issue on that Shuttle based machine talks about disabling
the firewire controller and *then* it still being alive when the system
powers on and crashing the system.

I interpret this as a bug. 


Also, I suck at reply-to.
