I believe the Apple Thuderbolt-to-Firewire is built with an TI chip and
will work out of the box under Linux

There are people running Apple adapter successfully under Linux

Check this thread..

Where someone says:

 I am also using an Apple Thunderbolt-Firewire adapter without any problems.
   This is using Arch Linux on a Lenovo T430s which also has an ExpressCard
   slot - I've tried using the ExpressCard-Firewire adapter I used with my
   previous laptop but the Thunderbolt adapter seems more stable (not sure
   whether because of Firewire chip or other reasons).
