wait on your feedback before sending this to the -stable team.  (Please try
to test it and get back to me quickly -- I'd like to send this over before
the 2.6.24.5 review cycle begins)

...all of this noise was made, and now not a single person is willing to 
test the proposed solution?

I don't think that there will be many more 2.6.24.y releases.  I have an 
ivtv patch queued for 2.6.24.5, and this tda10086 patch is sitting in my 
outbox, waiting for test results.

I suspect that 2.6.25 will be released in a few days, after which, 
2.6.24.y -stable release turnaround gets slower and slower, and most 
likely will end by the time 2.6.26 is released.

If you want this fixed, then the fix needs testing .... NOW.

Mike
