-What: raw1394 (a.k.a. "Raw IEEE1394 I/O support" for FireWire)
-Date: May 2010 (scheduled), finally removed in kernel v2.6.37
-Contact: linux1394-devel@lists.sourceforge.net
-Description:
- /dev/raw1394 was a character device file that allowed low-level
- access to FireWire buses. Its major drawbacks were its inability
- to implement sensible device security policies, and its low level
- of abstraction that required userspace clients to duplicate much
- of the kernel's ieee1394 core functionality.
- Replaced by /dev/fw*, i.e. the <linux/firewire-cdev.h> ABI of
- firewire-core.

-Users:
- libraw1394 (works with firewire-cdev too, transparent to library ABI
