The same bug seems to be reported earlier on kernel bugzilla:
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9455

Citing Mauro from the bug:
# 3) some problem at cx88-dvb register routine didn't interpret the error. I
# think this bug were solved, at the tree, for a patch later than
# changeset 7537.

Sadly cx88-dvb still oops with current v4l-dvb hg tree.
