Ahh - I reread your original post. 

Your stuff has been in DVB in the OS and it used to work 
from there. 

What I was fiddling with is in video4linux CVS and is used 
for testing only. It was not added to the OS yet. Therefore 
the stuff I worked on yesterday could not affect you in any 
way. That was my concern.

So it would appear that bit-rot has broken your driver. 
Possible causes are linux-2.6.12-rc6 vanilla sources 
incompatibility with earlier versions in the area of i2c 
registration and dvb registration. I am not familiar with 
you driver other than both appear to share the cx88 code.

I don't think I can be of any help to you. Maybe someone 
else on the list has expertise.
