module weirdness

Just upgraded my entire system to the lastest CVS DragonFly.

In my kernel config I have:

device          firewire        # FireWire bus code
device          sbp             # SCSI over FireWire (Requires scbus and da)
device          fwe             # Ethernet over FireWire (non-standard!)

But on booting I get:

can't re-use a leaf (if_fwe_debug)!
module_register: module firewire/fwe already exists!
linker_file_sysinit "if_fwe.ko" failed to register! 17
fwe0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        ch 1 dma -1

kldstat gives:

 3    1 0xc1fef000 3000     if_fwe.ko

This never happened before.

dmesg output for probing remains the same:

fwohci0: vendor=1102, dev=4001
fwohci0: <1394 Open Host Controller Interface> mem 0xeb000000-0xeb003fff,0xeb004000-0xeb0047ff irq 10 at device 11.2 on pci0

fwohci0: Initiate bus reset
fwohci0: BUS reset
fwohci0: node_id=0xc800ffc0, gen=1, CYCLEMASTER mode
firewire0: 1 nodes, maxhop <= 0, cable IRM = 0 (me)
firewire0: bus manager 0 (me)

ifconfig output:

fwe0: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        ether 02:02:3c:00:52:97
        ch 1 dma -1

This used to be a normal working interface.

I'll look at it as soon as I get back behind my computer (somewhere on
sunday), but perhaps someone is bored enough and knows what might've
caused this.

Think carefully of what you ask for, because you just may get it...
