Not much work to set up some lines and you had all ready so far.
It takes more time to look up the latest known status on the lists.

In this case, we had to start also to look for coding style issues
running seven years old code against a script and I was not sure if I
have to fix all what comes up over all places, when submitting some new
lines ...  (then I ask also, who took it previously?)

No money and totally legal.

It's your patch suggestion with the fix for the auto detection you asked
for and taking Egidio's previous test report into account.

If you have a recent v4l-dvb snapshot from the master repository at
linuxtv.org, put it into it and name it, say, sioux.patch.

"patch --dry-run -p1 < sioux.patch"

If no error.

"patch -p1 < sioux.patch"
"make rmmod"
"make rmmod"
"make install"
"modprobe -v saa7134"

Check if the auto detection does work and test all you can, analog TV,
digital TV, radio and the other inputs. Report what you can't test and
what goes wrong and maybe needs further fixes.

You have the link to read about it. No fake allowed.
Just a line "Signed-off-by: your_name <your.e-mail.somewhere>"

I don't make the rules, not even Linus, some gambling in the markets
force us to take care to document our code. For just adding a new card
it might be a bit too much currently ...

See above and read. It is up to you. If you don't like it, you get at
least credit as Sioux.

Happy testing, that is the work now.
