the great stuff is still made here and not on any kernels, not even on
Linus' kernels ;) Sometimes it goes wild, sorry.

If I got shot your card down due to a gpio22 crash, still great ...
Ask for revenge or compensation.

You have still some card=94 option in your modprobe.conf or related.
The patch will work, not sure if the same IR trouble/fun is on the
cardbus version to be expected, but that can be investigated.

Tuner seems to be dead/not initialized.

Yes, Peter could try the recent without ever using card=112 before.
And you could try if it makes a difference without Hartmut's latest
changes by downloading a snapshot just before and than try also his
latest again. There are more cooks on it recently.

Maybe taking the bz2 or gz on top from that one?
