Holger was of the opinion that having the demux in dvb-core
was stupid for devices which have no hw demux, so he
programmed around dvb-core. His plan was to add a
mmap-dma-buffers kind of API to the frontend device,
but it never got implemented.
Anyway, it's bad if one driver is different than all the others.
