Markus,

I don't know what you are talking about. ;)

We all, of course including you, are v4l-dvb!

So, Oliver should review Manu's multiproto patches, but get's confused
by some Kconfig stuff from Trent in between, which he now first time
interprets as in worst case personal. Total bullshit! Trent tries to
keep the build possible, as Mauro and Mike did before and he is doing a
great job.

Next Johannes should come in, that is not bound to days or weeks, and
declare that we don't ride a dead horse.

Finally Manu has to made a decision, how far we can proceed for now.
Since all what will fail will fall back to him next! Stay fair.

If he can't overcome his bttv v4l2 clash with Mauro, and we on v4l can't
let Mauro go for nothing (!!!), he might submit his patches over Andrew
or Linus directly, if he feels better then.

Until anything such happens, Steve is also only a captive of it and to
do things twice ... Nico said it.

If needed, I'm at least good for to get some hardware and crash a
little.

Cheers,
Hermann
