	Indeed. Much cleaner.

	I have tested this on a machine which contains an Aver 771
and a TwinHan VisionPlus. Patch was appplied to raw 2.6.11.

	Before the patch, the Aver loaded, then the VisionPlus,
then the kernel hanged (bttv_verbose last said BT878ARESET?).
After the patch, both load and scan just fine. Bravo!
2.6.12 badly needs this!

	I guess the only question now is -
Will any future DVB cards use on-board BT8xx audio?
