Support for the cx23418 mpeg encoder / DVB/ATSC pass-thru / pci bridge chipset
is already underway.  It is a work in progress, and not yet ready.

The cx2341x module will be used as part of this driver.  Currently, the cx2341x
module is mainly used for the mpeg controls.  This module, in addition to some
glue code, already works for the cx23417, but additional work is needed for the
pci bridge functionality.

An announcement will be made when the project has matured enough for testing.

I'm not the guy working on this, in case you're wondering.  ...that's all I can
say about it right now.
