Yep.

1. The firmware file has a different name;
2. The firmware file is no longer the whole DLL renamed, but a subset.

The get-dvb-firmware script will do the right thing, so it's easiest to
use that to get the firmware you need for 2.6.10.

3. You must have hotplug installed, since it's now needed for firmware
uploading.
