It's really hard for anyone to make sense of a patch bomb like this.
There's just too many changes, and none of the patches even have comments
longer than one line.

The organization of the patches is really hard to follow too.  For example,
patch 19 adds a NULL pointer check to tuner-core (why is this necessary?)
and then also adds two register names names to the dvb zl10353 driver.
Those changes have nothing to do with each other.  It's patch 20 that
actually adds the code to zl10353 that uses the new registers, and it even
changes the names used in patch 19.
