But what about the specific kernel problem that I mentioned?
Where if there is a large number of streams, and the CA message
goes above 128, and the kernel garbles the message?

If there are a lot of people successfully using CAMs with linuxdvb
then how come none of them have ever encountered this problem?
It will surely occur of there are any OpenTV driven systems, because
OpenTV adds quite a few private encrypted streams.

Why is your only response effectively "... there is nothing
wrong with CAMs ... " while completely ignoring the bulk
of my useful contribution?
