2.6.13-rc6-mm1 contains some i2c changes, that cause all older 
i2c-related stuff to break.  I doubt that dvb-kernel is going to embrace 
those changes until they make their way into Linus's stable tree.

If you wish to use dvb-kernel cvs with 2.6.13, you're going to have to 
use either an -rc kernel or a -git kernel.
