Since the most recent build of the v4l-dvb modules I have not been able to 
rmmod dst without the -f (force) option.  dst is removed with -f, but then I 
am completely unable to rmmod dvb-bt8xx, even with -f.  It returns:
ERROR: Removing 'dvb_bt8xx': Device or resource busy
but 'lsmod | grep dvb-bt8xx' returns:
dvb_bt8xx              18052  0
dvb_core               80552  1 dvb_bt8xx
bt878                  11048  1 dvb_bt8xx
dvb_pll                14724  1 dvb_bt8xx
bttv                  172404  2 dvb_bt8xx,bt878
firmware_class         10496  2 dvb_bt8xx,bttv
i2c_core               21520  8 

which makes me think dvb-bt8xx isn't being used by anything.  What would 
cause this module to be busy?

At this point my abilities in linux make rebooting the only option to 
re-insmod the dvb modules.

Thanks for any help with this.
