Error logging into SBP-2 device - login timed-out


I got a Western Digital 3.5 inch IDE hard drive and stuck it in a "no name" enclosure. I don't know what brand it is. It has 2 firewire ports, a usb port, and a power cord.

I got a 6 pin to 4 pin firewire cable to plug it into my laptop. I heard the extra 2 pins on the 6 pin ports are for power. The cable doesn't supply power, but that doesn't matter because the enclosure gets AC power from the wall, right?

Anyway, I plug it in and turn it on, and it's device node never shows up in /dev. /var/log/sys.log says
Code:
Jul 28 22:32:57 Shinobu kernel: ieee1394: The root node is not cycle master capable; selecting a new root node and resetting...
Jul 28 22:32:57 Shinobu kernel: ieee1394: Node added: ID:BUS[0-00:1023]  GUID[0030e002e0454b97]

Jul 28 22:32:57 Shinobu kernel: ieee1394: sbp2: Try serialize_io=0 for better performance
Jul 28 22:32:57 Shinobu kernel: scsi0 : SBP-2 IEEE-1394
Jul 28 22:33:18 Shinobu kernel: ieee1394: sbp2: Error logging into SBP-2 device - login timed-out
Jul 28 22:33:18 Shinobu kernel: sbp2: probe of 0030e002e0454b97-0 failed with error -16
The sbp2 login timeout and error -16 have been happening to people for years. Has anybody figured out how to fix it yet?

I have Linux 2.6.17.7 with the Grsecurity patch, and ieee1394, ohci1394, and sbp2 compiled as modules.

lspci says
Code:
02:05.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394): Texas Instruments TSB43AB21 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link) (prog-if 10 [OHCI])
        Subsystem: Gateway 2000 Unknown device 0602
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 10
        Memory at e8207000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K]
        Memory at e8200000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2
I tried loading sbp2 with serialize_io=0, I tried both firewire ports on the drive, and I tried turning the drive on before plugging it in. The drive seems to work over USB, but my laptop only has USB 1.1 built in, and that's not fast enough for what I want to do (audio recording). I can't use USB 2.0 because of another problem.

I tried it with a vanilla kernel (no grsecurity) and it worked. So I'm off to the grsecurity forum...
