CI with regards to the STB0899 + 7146 based cards works properly AFAICS.

In fact, received quite some mails long back itself that CA on these
cards worked properly.

On some machines with buggy BIOS'es, APIC issues I2C and CA issues were
kind of prominent, but generally, saw quite some successfully decrypted
DVB-S2 HD streams with some few persons around.
