There are absolutely no messages regarding saa7130 in the kernel log?
This would mean that the driver does not even see the card, otherwise
you would at least see the initialization messages of the saa713x core
driver - even if the card is unknown.
Do you see the card if you do lspci?
I am not fully sure about this: Is there a PCI bridge in between?
On my notebook, i need the kernel option: pci=assign-busses to get
the cardbus modules visible.
