Indeed, cache bug is now fixed, old api works as expected in all cases. (Exept 
for the cinergyT2 case off course)

However, i see that GETting DTV_DELIVERY_SYSTEM always returns the cached 
value, so at first (after modules (re)load) it returns 0. An application 
really needs to know the delivery system (and others usefull infos) to be 
able to handle a device, like the old api FE_GET_INFO.
