I didn't compile from source.  I installed an ISO image.  I don't know enough C to be confident in doing as you advise.  Is there a manual install process by which I can disable the firewire code?

Bug #3178: System Repeatedly Prints Error to Console

* Author: rudolfwinestock

* Target version: 
I just installed DragonFly BSD to my laptop, last night.  It's a Dell Latitude E6520.  I decided to live dangerously and installed the daily ISO snapshot (2-20-2019, version with the HAMMER2 file system.

I chose the Dvorak keyboard layout, but that didn't take.  More seriously, the system repeatedly prints the same error message every few seconds.  Here it is:

fwohci0: BUS reset
Unknown tcode 14
fwohci0: node_id=0xc000ffc0, gen=2, CYCLEMASTER mode
firewire0: 1 nodes, maxhop <= 0, cable IRM = 0 (me)
firewire0: bus manager 0 (me)

Note that "gen=2" on the third line increments by 3 each time the message appears.  That number wraps around somewhere in the 200 mark.  The error keeps getting spammed to the screen even when I start vi.  I tried searching for that error, but got nothing.
