But these flags are _not effecting_ the glue-logic.  Why is there
a 'the common driver'?  Maybe because it handles the common part?
These flags were ad hoc hacks that should have never been accepted
in the first place.  Even the still present controlreg parameter
had better been some kind of enum: MODE_PARALLEL/SERIAL/HS_SERIAL
or so.

Btw, it's your patch that leaves no options - you disable the dma
error reporting completely.  I can turn them on at runtime via:

 echo 1 >/sys/module/dvb/dvb_bt8xx/parameters/debug

Ciao, ET.
