default n
Export all symbols of ieee1394's driver programming interface, even
those that are not currently used by the standard IEEE 1394 drivers.
This option does not affect the interface to userspace applications.
Say Y here if you want to compile externally developed drivers that
make extended use of ieee1394's API. It is otherwise safe to say N.
This option will be removed soon. Don't worry, say N.
