WTF?  I'm asking what I should do with my patch so I can get this code
fixed, placed in a common place, and use it in another module.  If
someone wants to then patch that with a more accurate ilog2 and write a
conversion to i10log10 or whatever I'm fine with that too.

When I'm asking the question what should I do, I'm not really looking
for the response "this is what someone else is doing that might be
tangentially related to what you have submitted."  Give me some
direction here.

dvb_math or dvb_core_math?  linked into dvb_core.ko?
