SubjectRe: [GIT PULL for v3.17] si2165 firmware changes
From
Yeah, this is pure crap. It doesn't even compile.

drivers/media/dvb-frontends/si2165.c:1063:17: error: expected ‘,’ or
‘;’ before ‘SI2165_FIRMWARE’
MODULE_FIRMWARE(SI2165_FIRMWARE);

because it should presumably say "SI2165_FIRMWARE_REV_D" now.

Why the f*ck do you send me totally untested crap?
