NAMEfirewire - IEEE1394 High-performance Serial Bus
SYNOPSISTo compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file:
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:
DESCRIPTIONFx provides machine-independent bus support and raw drivers for ifconfig interfaces.
The ifconfig driver consists of two layers: the controller and the bus layer. The controller attaches to a physical bus (like pci(4)). The ifconfig bus attaches to the controller. Additional drivers can be attached to the bus.
Up to 63 devices, including the host itself, can be attached to a ifconfig bus. The root node is dynamically assigned with a PHY device function. Also, the other ifconfig bus specific parameters, e.g., node ID, cycle master, isochronous resource manager and bus manager, are dynamically assigned, after bus reset is initiated. On the ifconfig bus, every device is identified by an EUI 64 address.
