Does this mean that it should no longer be possible to compile
the firmware into the driver? Well, apparently it _is_ possible,
so please don't drop this - it's the way I want to do this, because
this hotplug stuff may be good for a user system, but on my system
I want to be able to easily switch driver versions by simply
setting a symlink.
I've decided to give the dvb-kernel driver another chance today,
so please don't scare me away from it again ;-)
