Doesn't symbol_request return a NULL in such a case?
At the time I didn't try the above configuration
(CONFIG_DVB_USB_AF9005_REMOTE=n), but removed the compiled
dvb-usb-af9005-remote.ko, and all was well (i.e. the symbol_request
returned NULL and the remote handling was disabled).

But it'd break the alternative rc decoding module (not integrated in the
kernel because it uses lirc):

Not really an issue for me, since I'm using a lirc-serial homebrew
device, (besides, my af9005 device is broken, though the remote part is
still working, so in a pinch I could use it as an usb remote receiver).

@Ingo, silly question, but do you have an af9005 based device where this
is crashing?
