[linux-dvb] MSI TV @nywhere a/d support

I must be blind.  I don't see any remote code for the FLYDVB-Trio device.  I have the latest v4l-dvb.

Hi all!

Guys, before anyone scratches a hole into their head: The MSI TV at nywhere A/D 
is the LifeView FlyDVB-T Hybrid. Remote support, as far as I know, is 
identical to the FlyDVB-Trio - keydown on GPIO18 (as I discovered 
originally), and keycode fetch through I2C. Code for this has recently been 
implemented, as far as I follow things.

Of course the remote is also the one LifeView supplies. I added its definition 
quite a while ago, when I worked on the Trio.

Which reminds me - can we call I2C code from the saa7134 IRQ handler yet?
