Yes, I know. I'm running the rawhide kernel because it got a newer
ieee1394 module with the disable_irm option.

I've been discussing this issue on the linux1394-user list as well. The
problem I'm trying to solve is how to use my LaCie firewire disc and
have it detected when booting the system. There is some shortcomings in
the ieee1394 module and I was adviced to use the disable_irm option.
This option works great when I manually do modprobe ohci1394 from the
command line. But when I did a boot, this option was not honored until I
recreated initrd as you suggested. 

Also I was told that it should not be necessary to include the ieee1394
module in initrd so I just ran the mkinitrd command (mkinitrd
<initrd.image> <kernel.version>). The option from /etc/modprobe.conf
seems to be used (at least dmesg outputs that irm is disabled). But
still I see the same error when the firewire disc is detected:

ieee1394: Host added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023]  GUID[00608f0000007239]
ieee1394: Node added: ID:BUS[0-01:1023]  GUID[00d04b5419086e8d]
ieee1394: The root node is not cycle master capable; selecting a new root node and resetting...
ieee1394: Node changed: 0-01:1023 -> 0-00:1023
ieee1394: Node changed: 0-00:1023 -> 0-01:1023 

But when if remove the ohci module and then do modprobe on it again,
everything works.

And ideas to whats causing this?
