Hi Markus,
a thousands of thanks for your friendly response - very nice! What a pleasure!

I do not send in the two patches for one more time. I have sent them in so often!
If you take a closer look at the mailing list you will easily find them.

One is a docu fix, and the other one, causing so much trouble out of nothing but Chehab's stubbornness and incompetence, is the one that makes the two DST modules
deselectable (i. e. DST itself for TwinHan DST and clones plus DST_CA for TwinHan cards with CA slot and Pinnacle PCTV SAT cards with CI extension for example).

Chehab told me some crap about unresolved symbols which never existed as this second patch just runs fine.
I also did not miss any warning lines in the deselection menu that I programmed and I can swear I definitely missed no chance to convince Chehab and others that my patches are close to being real perfect! IN VAIN!

So, if you do not find my patches on the mailing list or if there are any questions as far as what concerns that issue please feel free to ask me as I believe that you are really open-minded towards that.

Above that I want to confirm the utmost necessity to rip Trent Piepho's regressive work out of 2.6.21-git2 as it is in fact technically the most regressive and reactionary crap that I ever have seen......

So please Linus - rip that crap out of 2.6.21-git2. And if you do see questions what parts you need to rip out, please feel free to ask me....

Cheers
Uwe
