I've looked at this patch and it has significant changes to dvb_frontend 
and other user facing API's. It's not something that can be merged as 
is, without major cleanup.

It would be possible to extract, cleanup and merge the demodulator/card 
driver, probably.

I don't have this hardware so I probably wouldn't work on the card 
specific driver.

I will use this for DSS reference though, thanks.
