OK, I must admit to being pretty confused about the way 2.6.x loads 
modules. The saa7134 is being loaded, and pretty early in the boot 
sequence, automatically. But I don't know what causes it. Shortly after 
the serial ports get set up, the IP/TCP stuff is setup, then ACPI, and 
then saa7134 get loaded.

No, and I couldn't work out how to make this happen. I tried creating a 
file called saa7134 in modprobe.d with only the line "options saa7134 
card=70,70"; this works when the module is loaded by modprobe, but not 
when it is loaded automatically at kernel startup. I tried putting 
saa7134 card=70,70 into /etc/modules but this doesn't affect anything 
(perhaps the module is being loaded already before /etc/modules time).

I don't think so. Which module do you mean by the tuner?
