Hm, I don't know what dvb-kernel.tar.gz is, and I don't use SuSE. :-(
The CVS driver works here with a vanilla kernel.

Usually such problems happen
- if kernel and driver are compiled with different compiler versions or
- DVB driver modules shipped with the kernel are mixed with CVS drivers

I suggest a fresh CVS checkout, see http://linuxtv.org/cvs.php
For testing you can compile the CVS drivers outside the kernel in the
build-2.6 directory. Use the insmod.sh script to load/unload the driver.
