There is currently a problem with the dst driver, it has a circular
dependency with dst and dst_ca that keeps it from working. There are also
a few other problems, but not as serious.
Someone is working on a fix, but it's broken now and I've had a fix
for several days. So if you want something now, try this.
The last two patches at http://linuxtv.org/hg/~tap/dst should fix
all the dst issues. I do not have a dst to test it with, but I think
I got everything right. Famous last words, I know.
Circular dependency, modules can actually load now
The dst-ca device wasn't unregisted when the driver was
Module use count would go up by two when dst_ca device
Failure of dvb_register_device will be handled correctly
The dvb_attach() system will work for the dst-ca. If you
have a DST with no CA, you don't need to load the dst-ca driver.
If you don't use dvb_detach, everything will work too.
