No, it is not this patch.  It is something else.  And whatever it is, it 
is already present in 2.6.25-rc3.

To reproduce it, I need to plug an SBP-2 device in and out, then shut 
the machine down (e.g. shutdown -h now, whereas shutdown -r now does not 
seem to trigger the bug).

Since it happens after all filesystems were unmounted or r/o-mounted, I 
can't capture the log output easily (perhaps with a netconsole or so) 
but it also can't do any damage at that point anymore.

It does not happen with ohci1394 + sbp2, so it is obviously located in 
the firewire stack.

I am now gradually removing debug options from the kernel to see which 
debug facility is making the fuzz...
