Again I got a little hardware problem :)
The problem with my disk (it's a Western Digital MyBook Studio Edition disk) is the spinup time. The disk needs some time to recover from suspend mode and the disk controller seems to block communication while this happens. The simple idea to get this sorted out is to increase the timeout the driver waits for the drive to answer. I increased the timeout from 2000ms to 5000ms and just get one error message at the beginning, but it works good after that first timeout.
The patch is against Linux 2.6.24 (yes this time I am pretty up to date :) ).
It looks like that then:
The message that the driver cannot log into fw1.1 seems logical, since I've only one device connected but the disk has 2 ports to allow extending the bus with other devices
