[linux-dvb] KNC1 DVB-T card working - Patch for scan.c

You are right Hartmut, the driver works fine, and the problem was due
to the very slow tuning time. I have increased a "sleep" in the dvbscan
program and I can now do a "scan" with the KNC1 TV station DVB-T with
the DVB driver included in kernel 2.6.11.4. This increase is also needed
for the TT budget DVB-T card (saa7146 + tda10045H). So I think it would
be good to apply the patch enclosed.

Thanks for your help !
