^^^ These above do not conflict with each other.  Hans and I have
coordinated such that we will not patch clash, and the i2c conversions
deal mostly with client modules...  any impact on bttv, if any, will be
localized in the i2c code.  The pending bttv patch probably needs
updating anyway, due to changes upstream.

The changes above hold priority over the two below.

Regardless, the xc2028 changes are unlikely to cause any conflict with
the other changes.

Hans is waiting for the tuner-refactor-phase-2 tree to be merged before
he pushes in the i2c changes, and you should wait for those both to be
merged before dealing with xc2028, in my opinion.

anything is possible, but i don't think it's likely :-)

OK.  I have more changes planned that depend on these... If I add
changesets to the tree, i'll send you addendums to my original pull request.
