Can videobuf_dvb be used by hardware with MPEG decoders, too? My
(probably not up-to-date) impression was that it's been designed
specifically for "budget" cards with no demux or decoder hardware. But
the sw_filter functions are useful for those devices, too, i.e. to
feed a PID to multiple userspace clients or to provide section filters
where some kind of hardware only provides basic PID filtering.
