+What: dv1394 driver (CONFIG_IEEE1394_DV1394)
+When: June 2007
+Why: Replaced by raw1394 + userspace libraries, notably libiec61883. This
+ shift of application support has been indicated on www.linux1394.org
+ and developers' mailinglists for quite some time. Major applications
+ have been converted, with the exception of ffmpeg and hence xine.
+ Piped output of dvgrab2 is a partial equivalent to dv1394.
