    SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/14] firmware update for av7110 dvb driver
    Hello Marcel,

    Yes, we know. When I looked at it the last time, there were some
    problems that kept us from actually finishing the work.

    (If you did not use a hotplug agent, then the system was frozen, because
    the firmware foo did not use it's own workqueue)

    I gave some feedback, but I don't know if the fixes made it into the
    kernel yet.

    I have once patched our drivers to use request_firmware() and I have
    these patches still lying around, so I'll try and see if they work when
    I have some spare time.
