CONFIG_IEEE1394_ETH1394: Ethernet over 1394

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_IEEE1394_ETH1394 has multiple definitions:

Ethernet over 1394 found in drivers/ieee1394/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IEEE1394_ETH1394:

Help text

This driver implements a functional majority of RFC 2734: IPv4 over 1394. It will provide IP connectivity with implementations of RFC 2734 found on other operating systems. It will not communicate with older versions of this driver found in stock kernels prior to 2.6.3. This driver is still considered experimental. It does not yet support MCAP, therefore multicast support is significantly limited.

IP networking over 1394 (experimental) found in drivers/ieee1394/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_IEEE1394_ETH1394:

Help text

This driver implements a functional majority of RFC 2734: IPv4 over 1394. It will provide IP connectivity with implementations of RFC 2734 found on other operating systems. It will not communicate with older versions of this driver found in stock kernels prior to 2.6.3. This driver is still considered experimental. It does not yet support MCAP, therefore multicast support is significantly limited.

The module is called eth1394 although it does not emulate Ethernet.

NOTE: eth1394 is superseded by the newer firewire-net driver. See http://ieee1394.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Juju_Migration for further information on how to switch to the new FireWire drivers.
