Could you please try to find out which changeset broke the code?

If you have a current HG checkout, you can update the driver to a given
version using 'hg update <no of changeset>'.

It's probably a change in budget-ci.c or dvb_ca_en50221.c

Just an educated guess:
Did   http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/b0a3a9b43d60
break the code? -> 'hg update 6279'
