[linux-dvb] [PATCH] to dvbsec_api.c in the dvb_apps for diseqc Goto X function

I'm testing the dvbsec api for the Goto X part to control my rotor and 
found it did not respond as it should be.

I pulled the DiseqC 1.2 spec from the Eutelsat website and found a bug 
in the dvbsec_api.c file. The first diff file solves the bug and makes 
the api follow the spec as it should be. But after testing I found out 
my rotor did not what it should do.

I looked into the source for MythTV and found that the Angle part of the 
DiseqC command is build differently from the spec. So I changed the 
dvbsec_api.c file again to act like the MythTV source. See the second 
diff file.

With the second diff file my rotor does what I tell it to do. When I say 
15.2 Degrees it goes to 15.2 degrees East.

I do not know why there is a difference to the Eutelsat Diseqc 1.2 
specs. for this. If somebody knows please tell?

Who is able to apply this patch to the hg repository on linuxtv.org.
