I've just added a comment to patch 1/3.
I post it here again.

This patch fixes the bug in DMX_SET_BUFFER_SIZE for the demux.
Basically it resets read and write pointers to 0 in case they are beyond the new size of the buffer.

In the next patch (2/3) I rewrite this function to behave the same as the new DMX_SET_BUFFER_SIZE 
for the dvr.
I thought it is a good idea for the 2 very similar ioctl to be implemented in the same way.
