Hi Eric,

there are some comments at the lists, why we likely won't get the
patches into mainline that way. For example look for Eddi @pieri and
Peter Missel at the video4linux-list.

The radio ..., something simple went wrong caused by a wrong "dmesg"
sent in for another Kworld card with can tuner, but once in, nearly
impossible to get it out ;)

You could have always used card=65 for it. On that one we have been
testing originally. It is fixed since about a 1/2 year.

I'm still waiting for someone reporting for the S-Video input and
external analog sound in :)
