New to the list and linux dvb.  It's been a little frustrating  
getting going, but I now have a kernel with support for a pair of  
Air2PC 1st gen cards with the bcm3510 frontend.

I'm using the 2.6.12-git9 kernel patch on Fedora Core 3.  Initially,  
the flexcop-pci.ko module failed to load with this error:

Jun 28 08:25:46 dualxeon kernel: kobject_register failed for  
Technisat/B2C2 FlexCop II/IIb/III PCI (-13)
Jun 28 08:25:46 dualxeon kernel:  [<c021777d>] kobject_register+0x5d/

Jun 28 08:25:46 dualxeon kernel:  [<c0103a8f>] sysenter_past_esp 

Turns out that having a forward slash "/" in the driver name is  
illegal.  With the following diff, the flexcop-pci.ko modules loads

I'm sure flexcop-usb.c (and others) would need a similar diff also.
