Try this instead:

                   printk(KERN_DEBUG "trying class=%d num=%d slot=%d func=%d\n",
                             class, num, slot, func);
                   if ((class == 0xffffffff)) {
                       printk(KERN_DEBUG "No device here\n");
                       continue; /* No device at this func */

The curly brackets are important.  This version will still panic, and it will
probably spew a lot of msgs, but we'll hopefully find out which num/slot/func
is giving it indigestion.

That's because you forgot the curlies, and the 'continue;' is now unconditional
Now ou hit it *every* time, so you *never* do the test against
PCI_CLASS_SERIAL_FIREWIRE-OHCI and you never call init_ohci1394_controller();

And I suspect your *real* problem is something gone astray down in
init_ohci1394_conrtroller() - so if you change the code to never call it,
it never goes astray and you boot OK.

No - it's "u32 class", so treated as a 32-bit.
