Based on kernel version 3.13. Page generated on 2014-01-20 21:59 EST.

1	What:		raw1394 (a.k.a. "Raw IEEE1394 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/raw1394 was a character device file that allowed low-level
6		access to FireWire buses.  Its major drawbacks were its inability
7		to implement sensible device security policies, and its low level
8		of abstraction that required userspace clients to duplicate much
9		of the kernel's ieee1394 core functionality.
10		Replaced by /dev/fw*, i.e. the <linux/firewire-cdev.h> ABI of
11		firewire-core.
