At this time it duplicates all the device nodes along with
the frontends.

I have looked into this somewhat, and appreciate what you
are referring to. There would seem to be quite some 
significant reworking needed in videobuf-dvb to achieve
this requirement of one mux with multi-frontends in a
clean fashion.

If this is show-stopper, then so be it.
