We added patches a few weeks ago to avoid issues like this. Take a look 
at the cx88_mpeg_request_acquire function. It calls drv->probe (which 
translates into cx88_dvb_advise_acquire). For some reason the probe 
fails and the request_acquire function ejects the driver.

I'd do more testing today but time is short, I won't get to this until 
late this evening or tomorrow. Feel free to take a loot and/or post any 
patches to the list.
