I had a go at manually integrating it and it seems I was successful :-)
The driver detects the correct frontend and everything works as it should.
I attach a new version of the patch which applies to kernel 2.6.13-rc4 and the 
current dvb-kernel CVS.

I have only tested it with a new Nebula card, so someone needs to test it with 
a nxt6000 Nebula card. As far as I can tell, there is nothing in the patch 
which should break non-Nebula card support.

I'm not sure why the last patch didn't get applied to CVS, but it'd be great 
if this one could be.

Standard disclaimer: this patch works for me, but might not for other people - 
use it at your own risk. If this patch eats your card/system/hampster, you 
were warned...

Regards,
David.
