[linux-dvb] Status of dst_ca module

I have just come back after being away for a month, and I was wondering
what the current status of the dst_ca ci/cam decoding for encrypted
channels (specifically on the twinhan card) was. As far as I could
decipher from lurking on the list, the pmt stuff needed a rewrite (done
by Olvind ?), and then some other steps were needed in order to get a
proper decryption of the mpeg streams. On my own system about a month
ago, with sources compiled from cvs, I was able to successfully get
ca_zap to work (on some channels, others would cause a segfault), but
the decrypted stream would be garbage. (This was on Foxtel in Australia
with a legitimate red (irdeto 2 I think) Foxtel card).

Has there been any progess on this front recently ? If I rebuild this
driver and ca_zap from the latest cvs should I expect it to be able to
successfully decrypt a stream ?
