[linux-dvb] [PATCH] Cablestar 2 i2c retries

Hello.

At some point the Flexcop driver was changed to support newer Flexcop cards.
These modifications however broke the detection of Cablestar 2 DVB-C cards.

The reason is that the earlier version of the driver used to retry
unsuccessful i2c operations. The demodulator of Cablestar 2 cards (stv0297)
seems to be very dependent on these retries and adding them back fixes
Cablestar detection.
