Roland's patch looks sane to me...  Can you check this as well, to make sure
this wont break the control of cx88-mpeg between cx88-dvb and cx88-blackbird for
dual-functionality devices such as the hvr1300 ?

It's been a few weeks since Roland sent this in, so I've attached the original
patch from Roland just in case you dont have it.

Roland, just a few things...

First off, we will need you to provide a sign-off, in the form:

Signed-off-by: Your Name <email at addre.ss>

...in order for us to be able to apply this changeset to the kernel.

Also, you have broken some whitespace codingstyle.  This is a minor issue, but
we shouldn't insert any extra spaces inside the (parenthesis) like ( this ).

I'd just like to hear confirmation that this doesnt break the cx88-mpeg
switching on the hvr1300 before we apply this.
