    Well, I said it needed touch up. ;-) After all I didn't seriously believe it
    gets merged in current state (and yes, I didn't think about the module issue,
    but you're right , of course). But it simply didn't seem like dvb guys are
    caring about the problem. I once (probably half a year ago already) mailed to
    linux-dvb and got zero response. That told me everything.

    Personally I won't invest more time in perfecting the patch. I just wanted to
    get some attention to this problem and will use the patch privately for my
    own happiness...

    Thanks for your input.
