SubjectMultiple USB DVB devices cause hard lockups
   I'm trying to get a pair of Twinhan Alpha II DVB-USB devices
working on the same machine. With a single device plugged in, I can
quite easily receive and stream data.

With both devices connected to the machine, both are recognised.
However, use of either device causes some form of stack backtrace (I
can't see the top of it to verify what kind) from the kernel, and a
hard lock-up. Magic SysRQ is non-functional after the lock-up. Failure
cases that I've seen are:

- Streaming from device 0 is OK for a few seconds, and then the
system locks hard.

- Streaming from device 0 is OK. Streaming from device 1 before
device 0 crashes locks the device 1 process in D state, and then
locks the system hard a few seconds later.

I've observed this behaviour on both 2.6.12.2 and 2.6.14. No logs
were left from the crashes, and only incomplete information on screen,
so I presume that I'll need to get a serial console set up to capture
output. A log of the devices being identified on boot-up is attached
below, for what it's worth (probably not much).

Hugo.
