I'm thinking waiting for your downstream sync of the dvb-kernel tree should
be in before changes made in it are synced back, make sense?

I'm wondering tho, can large cleanups that risc the driver stability be
committed now, since the test-time in the dvb-kernel tree will be maximized
before the next sync downstream?

Happy hollydays,
