OK, I just looked over it. What about dib0700_rc_query_old_firmware,
that would also need to be fixed.

I don't have an overview over the media framework, so I wonder what
arbitrates concurrent access to the buffer? Functions which are only
called from the initialization and probe routines are probably properly
arbitrated by the driver core. But I would expect (perhaps
that is me being naive) stuff like dib0700_change_protocol to need some
sort of mutex ?

It seems to be called from some /sys/class/*/ file while for example
legacy_dvb_usb_read_remote_control, which calls dib0700_rc_query_old_firmware, is
described as being a polling function, i.e. periodically executed...
or the streaming_ctrl function, that looks like it is executed at


can you add yourself to the
MAINTAINERS file please?
