Using the 2.6.12.2 kernel, and the new flexcop driver, when I go to bring my 
devices down so they can be unloaded (for reboot or otherwise), the:

ifconfig <dev> down

On the last device locks at the ifconfig.  It doesn't lock the machine, and if 
this is being done from command line, it can be Ctrl-C out of . . . but is 
problematic for reboots.

This is using the B2C2 skystar2 card, using the latest b2c2_flexcop drivers on 
the 2.6.12 kernel.  I have created several dvb0_? devices for different PIDs.  
And it's always the *last* one that does the lock at ifconfig down.  This did 
not occur with 2.6.11.11.
