I never used the v4l-dvb repository but the dvb-kernel one for linux 2.6.
It's quite easy to patch the files manually.

After shutting down and a power off period of a few seconds, the driver loaded 
successfully and seems to work (I only testet it for a few minutes).
I used dvb-kernel from January the 3rd, with my patch posted yesterday 
( http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2006-January/007404.html ). 
Please do not commit this patch to cvs, as it includes white space changes 
and debug lines.

Thank you very much. This is a good example why I like open source. :-)
