With getstream a little toy project of mine i basically just fetch the
whole stream with pid 0x2000 for budget cards, or join individual pids
on non-budget cards and do the whole remuxing stuff in userspace.

It is okay to have a MpegTS demux in kernel space as its a "unify the
interface" thingy for all different cards, but the section reassembly
is just a little featured moved to the kernel where it IMHO does not
belong to.
