-  you have five changesets, however it is really just one
   lump of code as the changes are not logically seperate,
   and additionally in the wrong order.

   If Mauro would forward these as-is to
   Linus it would break bisecting for some people :-(
   The kernel must compile (and should work) after each
   changeset applied.

-  adding symbol_put() to the _release() functions means
   the drivers cannot be used without dvb_attach() anymore
   (not a problem for me, but I just wanted to mention it)

- fe->ops->write() should be called fe->ops->pll_write(), no?

- please never ever write
     if (foo) bar;
  always use
     if (foo)
