Average users probably shouldn't be using the 1.20 firmware until the
patch is checked in to the v4l-dvb, so we can control which devices
use 1.20 and the new i2c functionality (based on actual testing).

My original plan was to keep everybody at 1.10 in the initial patch,
and once maintainers of individual devices tested 1.20, they could
submit a patch to make that the default for said device.  Patrick felt
strongly that 1.20 should be a drop-in replacement for 1.20, but based
on this evening's experience I'm thinking we should go back to my
original plan.
