I've comitted these changes.

These patches did not apply. Anyway, I think it is wrong to
implement this for every card seperately. This should be factored
out and implemented once for all cards.

I'm both busy and lazy ;-/, and personally am somewhat disconnected
from the 2.4 stuff. Is there anyone willing to bring it in a shape
that I can just type "make release" and put the tarball into the
download dir? (E.g. update the README and NEWS file and put a
release tag on the tree.)

I don't think we'll release dvb-kernel for 2.6, instead I'll
put patches against the latest "stable" 2.6 kernel up, starting
with 2.6.12.
