Assuming I have a firewire card with a supported chipset, is there 
anything special I need to do in order for the kernel to recognize the 
card?  Shouldn't kudzu "wake up" and configure the card when I boot up 
after installing it?

This is a brand spanking new 4.4 system and a supported Agere chipset 
firewire card.  I'm having trouble tickling devices connected to the 
card.  In particular, I'm trying to mount a firewire external DVD device.

Lspsi shows the following so I *thought* the kernel found the card:
