v3? The only required changed should be in the core, device drivers don't need to
be changed. On example interface could be multiple DMX_SET_FILTER per fd, turning
a DMX into a DVR.  And of course the possibility to get a single TS, without
using the DVR.

Quite a good idea. Especially as you can do a select() on the fds and even dup()
them on a TCP-Socket ;-)
