cannot find the fault in budget_av.c.

guys, it is confirmed, that Your videobuf refactoring broke the saa7134 analog capture 
between release kernels 2.6.22..23 time:

#linux-dvb IRC log:

Dec 02 23:24:53 <Md>    after (I think) upgrading the X server (to 7.3), anything which 
tries to access my saa7134 analog card (I tried xawtv, tvtime and even mplayer) fails with VIDIOC_DQBUF. any clues?
Dec 03 00:09:31 <Md>    buggy kernel, not X. upgrading to 2.6.23 fixed it

by one of those commits:
and fixed for 2.6.23 by later commit.

for the saa7164_video.c analog capture is still incomplete or broken in linux-dvb mercurial and releases kernels by one of those commits:

could the authors pls give a hint which commit for the saa7134 could have fixed it for saa7134 analog cards?
I'll correct the saa7146_video.c code, then, otherwise it will take more weeks or 4E4 to find the bug.
