Right. The reason I went this route is that VBI streaming stops even
when another VBI starts to stream. I am debugging this. Looks like
you have a fix for this from reading below.

Will fix the typos and also I noticed, I forgot to catch updating
Copyright in one of the files.

Will do.

Yes. Y have been debugging with VBI included in the sharing, however
running into the below problem. Do you have the patch I can use to
test with this series?

Thanks for finding this problem. I narrowed it to close and didn't get
a chance to play with it.
