actually, both patches help. no more timeouts, and the frontend drivers
get loaded correctly (tried each patch separately). tried with latest hg
though, what's weird: now i also discover those "Disabling IRQ #xx,
nobody cared" messages, which some people experienced as well. well,
it's no dvb issue. i tried many combinations of kernel parameters
with/without acpi/apic, ... disabled almost everything in BIOS, etc. :-/
but the last working version for me is still 18.104.22.168.
