SubjectRe: [RFC] vtunerc: virtual DVB device - is it ok to NACK driver because of worrying about possible misusage?

Vtuner already has userland client/server pair. The server application
is connecting to _any_ /dev/dvb/adapter device. Please look at small
picture here:

That means the server part is using totally "clean" linux. Nothing more.

Adding nmap support should be straightforward. I have it on my TODO.
