I'm a dvb tester (and newbie developer now) for Twinhan card.  I use
my *only* home machine for dvb so I'm not really thrilled at the idea
of using -rc kernel.

If CVS requires -rc kernel, I'll wait for this kernel to be available
as source kernel in debian unstable distro before updating my CVS

If you go along with requiring -rc kernel (hoping this kind of
requirement will happen only every now and then), please use an
explicit tag in CVS so I'll be able to know easily when a new revision
will not work with my stable kernel. (or tag the latest version
working with stable 2.6.x)
