1	What:		dv1394 (a.k.a. "OHCI-DV I/O support" for FireWire)
2	Date:		May 2010 (scheduled), finally removed in kernel v2.6.37
3	Contact:	linux1394-devel@lists.sourceforge.net
4	Description:
5		/dev/dv1394/* were character device files, one for each FireWire
6		controller and for NTSC and PAL respectively, from which DV data
7		could be received by read() or transmitted by write().  A few
8		ioctl()s allowed limited control.
9		This special-purpose interface has been superseded by libraw1394 +
10		libiec61883 which are functionally equivalent, support HDV, and
11		transparently work on top of the newer firewire kernel drivers.
