What we are seeing here is in cx88-video and doesn't seem specific
to any cx88 card as such but I don't have any other card to test
therefore there is no evidence either way that this is a hvr-4000
only problem as yet, but more tests ought to be done.

As far as that function is concerned, my point is that it
appears to be raising the fault.

When testing tvtime & cat /dev/video0 what occurs is an
an open, EBUSY read, then a release. The release here
always puts the tuner in standby whether the previous
read was valid or not. This seems to be the bug as previously
pointed out.
