Ahh - I reread your original post.
Your stuff has been in DVB in the OS and it used to work
What I was fiddling with is in video4linux CVS and is used
for testing only. It was not added to the OS yet. Therefore
the stuff I worked on yesterday could not affect you in any
way. That was my concern.
So it would appear that bit-rot has broken your driver.
Possible causes are linux-2.6.12-rc6 vanilla sources
incompatibility with earlier versions in the area of i2c
registration and dvb registration. I am not familiar with
you driver other than both appear to share the cx88 code.
I don't think I can be of any help to you. Maybe someone
else on the list has expertise.
