Subject[review patch 0/1] add firedtv driver for FireWire-attached DVB receivers
The patch in the follow-up mail contains the firedtv driver for
FireWire-attached DVB boxes from Digital Everywhere GmbH. The driver
supports standard definition video reception (MPEG2-TS) of the DVB-C,
DVB-S/S2, and DVB-T boxes known as FireDTV (external devices) and
FloppyDTV (internal devices), their Common Interface for Conditional
Access Modules, and input from their infrared remote control.

High definition support is not yet implemented but people have voiced
interest to add it.

The driver is currently based on the ieee1394 driver stack but I started
to adapt it to the new firewire driver stack.

The driver was originally written by Andreas Monitzer and hosted in's v4l_experimental repository. From there it went through
Greg KH's staging tree way before staging was added to mainline; from
there I picked it up for's linux1394-2.6.git through which
it also was already exposed to linux-next for quite a while.

Manu Abraham, Ben Backx, and Henrik Kurelid updated and extended the
driver; I did lots of trivial cleanups and some refactoring and small

The history of the driver sources beginning with its addition to
staging can be looked at in linux1394-2.6.git; find the shortlog below.

The patch is available for 2.6.29-rc* in linux1394-2.6.git's firedtv

git:// firedtv

linux1394-2.6.git currently also contains backport branches:

git:// firedtv-2.6.28
git:// firedtv-2.6.27
git:// firedtv-2.6.26
git:// firedtv-2.6.25

Furthermore, firedtv is currently also available as patch tarballs and
as quilt series at

The history as in linux1394-2.6.git is fully "bisectable" i.e. does not
contain any known build bugs and a few minor known runtime bugs.

Addition of the interface with firewire-core will happen in
linux1394-2.6.git, but I expect longer-term maintenance of the driver to
be done via the DVB maintainers like with all other DVB drivers.

Comments on the patch in the following mail are very welcome. I target
the pre 2.6.30-rc1 window for mainline merge request of the driver, but
if feedback in this review round is positive I would even ask if the
driver can already be included before 2.6.29.

Size of the patch is ~80 kB, I hope it fits through the mailing lists.
