Well, I hoped that someone more familiar with the demuxer stuff would
comment on the patch. I am not very happy about using non-interruptible
lock operations...

Anyway, I'll apply the patch to HG master if you submit an updated patch:
- Please add a line of comment to each mutex_lock() stating _why_ the
  non-interruptible lock has to be used at this place.
- Please mark all occurrences which could be fixed by properly checking
  the return code in DVB core.
