The only bug I'm aware of which is still in 2.6.8-rc1+ and might be this
is that the card= insmod option lacks a range check (patch below), so
passing some insane high value might kill the driver. It shouldn't
happen with a simple "insmod cx88" + card autodetect through.

If it is something else -- no idea.

Yup, and some other v4l drivers as well ...
Just didn't know kthread exists before OLS ;)
