First some general remarks:
- your patch is word-wrapped
- there is no Signed-off-by: (see linux/Documentation/SubmittingPatches)
- please don't mix two different fixes in one patch

Zig-zag scan is not useful for cable cards, as there is not LNB
and hence no LNB-drift to correct. For the Siemens card tuning
problems are often caused by a wrong PWM paramter in the EEPROM.
See the list archives, this comes up every now and then.
So the zig-zag change is NAKed.

About the PCI-Id: So you have a Siemens card with a Technotrend
manufacturer-id? Hm, OK.

Can you send a non-wrapped version of your PCI-Id change?

Thanks,
Johannes
