[linux-dvb] dvbnet not working anymore with 2.6.25

I'm using debian/testing and dvbnet included in dvb-utils with in-kernel 
v4l/dvb modules.
I am able to receive IP datagrams with stock kernel 2.6.22-3-686.
After upgrading to 2.6.25-1-686 I have an error message whenever I try 
to bring up the dvb virtual network interface.
Here is what I try:

# dvbnet -p 775

DVB Network Interface Manager
Version 1.1.0-TVF (Build Mon Aug 06 21:44:42 2007)
Copyright (C) 2003, TV Files S.p.A

Device: /dev/dvb/adapter0/net0
Status: device dvb0_0 for pid 775 created successfully.

# ifconfig dvb0_0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address

and RX bytes stays to zero:

# ifconfig dvb0_0
dvb0_0    Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:00:00:00:00:00
           BROADCAST NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:4096  Metric:1
           RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
           TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
           collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
           RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
           Base address:0x307

Even if I assign an IP address ther result is the same.
Using dvb_net_debug=1 with dvb-core didn't give me any useful message.

Any help would be appreciated.
