Missing module ohci1394 in latest kernels

The ohci1394 kernel module seems to have been removed since kernel 2.6.3-2.1.253.
I've tried both kernel-2.6.4-1.281 and kernel-2.6.4-1.298, but the module isn't there anymore.

This makes my external firewire drives inaccesible.

Anyone know why the module has been removed/turned off?

The config file says:
# CONFIG_IEEE1394 is not set

it used to be:

CONFIG_IEEE1394=m

I'd rather not recompile the kernel myself.

I don't know, but it's easy to compile it yourself.

Would you like to know how?

Is it possible to just compile a single module (or a few, I'll need sbp2 too)?

If so, then yes please, I'd very much would like to know how.

I just don't want to recompile the whole kernel every time I upgrade (quite often, since I'm running the test version/rawhide

If you have the source in /usr/src it's easy.

Go into the directory as root and issue
Code:
make menuconfig
Find your modules. And say "m".

Save.

Code:
make modules && make modules_install
That's it.
