I do not know the answer to this question, but I have looked into it a
bit -- I figure it would be a good idea to share the info that I have,
in case it may help somebody else to solve the issue:

When I saw this email, immediately I thought of the i2c indirect pll
access regression in 2.6.18  ...  see here for the fix:


Unfortunately, this issue does not apply to the KWorld Xpert DVB-T card,
which is more or less based on the Conexant DVB-T reference design,
using a cx22702 DVB-T demod and a Thomson dtt7579 pll -- I do not yet
know of any particular regressions involving the drivers for those

Who else is seeing problems like this?  What hardware are you using?
