protocol in question.
The reason for making a library the interface to the kernel is to avoid
a program dependancy on the kernel version, which would hinder development and
a program dependency on the kernel version, which would hinder development and
optimization of raw1394. If development changed the protocol and made it
incompatible with previous versions only the libraw1394 has to be upgraded to
match the kernel version (instead of all applications).
Since version 2, libraw1394 also works with the kernel driver
firewire-core. libraw1394's role has thus become that of a raw1394
compatibility layer for existing applications when running on firewire-core.
