Here is a patch that implements the mentioned DMA transfer improvements.
I hope that these contain also the needed fix for you.
You can apply it into jusst.de/mantis Mercurial branch.
It modifies linux/drivers/media/dvb/mantis/mantis_dma.c only.
I have compiled the patch against 18.104.22.168-76.fc9.x86_64.
patch -p1 < mantis_dma.c.aligned_dma_trs.patch
Please tell us whether my patch helps you or not: if it helps, some of
my patch might get into jusst.de as
a fix for your problem.
