[linux-dvb] RTL2831U kernel driver

Hi Jan,

I am afraid I didn't do any integration work. The tarball previous 
posted (23/01/08) to the linux-dvb list is pretty much ready to go 
(documentation included). It just doesn't work for me, in fact no one 
has actually said it works at all. I am also not a dev, so presumably I 
can't checkin.

Note, I have now checked 2.6.24, however it is the same story, builds, 
modprobes, creates dev entries, and promising dmesg, but no tuning.
