 From my point of view, we can proceed the following way. Let's assume
i get my patches out this weekend.
While waiting for feedback, i can make a blind shot and extent the
TDA10046 driver as needed and post it untested. You can extend the dvb
driver taking the MD7134 as an example and start testing.
Again assuming that feedback for the MD7134 goes well, i will try to get
it into the official kernel end of next week. Afterwards i can jump into
this game.
