Sorry, no idea about the polarisation...
For the patch, just send a mail to the mailing list with the subject [PATCH]
and a description (add such device to dibcom driver), containing the patch
(you can create it running hg diff -p -U 8  v4l-dvb > somname.patch) and a
line saying signed-off by: yourname yourmail. You can also add me to the
signed-off by if you want :).  And probably somebody will update the source.
