I've applied your patch to my cxusb tree, with slight modifications, in
order to coincide with another patch to the same code.  Please test the
tree and confirm proper operation before I request a merge into the
master branch.


I'll push the Hong Kong scan file to dvb-apps after this tree is merged
into the master branch.

If you have any additional fixes / changes to make before this is merged
into master, please generate them against this cxusb tree.
