Hmm, the driver loads successfully here. But I'm not sure about the
changes. The device identified itself as release 2, as it did just
before reloading the newly compiled driver.

stb0899_get_dev_id: ID reg=[0x82]
stb0899_get_dev_id: Device ID=[8], Release=[2]

It may take several weeks of normal use before I can report success or
failure. This is my current distribution of Release:

      1 stb0899_get_dev_id: Device ID=[15], Release=[11]
      1 stb0899_get_dev_id: Device ID=[1], Release=[6]
     29 stb0899_get_dev_id: Device ID=[8], Release=[1]
     19 stb0899_get_dev_id: Device ID=[8], Release=[2]
      1 stb0899_get_dev_id: Device ID=[8], Release=[7]

Compared to my earlier report, Release=[2] has increased by 3.

BTW: the RTL transponder tuning issue hasn't improved here.
