1	What:		video1394 (a.k.a. "OHCI-1394 Video 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/video1394/* were character device files, one for each FireWire
6		controller, which were used for isochronous I/O.  It was added as an
7		alternative to raw1394's isochronous I/O functionality which had
8		performance issues in its first generation.  Any video1394 user had
9		to use raw1394 + libraw1394 too because video1394 did not provide
10		asynchronous I/O for device discovery and configuration.
11		Replaced by /dev/fw*, i.e. the <linux/firewire-cdev.h> ABI of
12		firewire-core.

16		users)
