Hi Leif,

Here is a patch that implements the mentioned DMA transfer improvements.
I hope that these contain also the needed fix for you.
You can apply it into jusst.de/mantis Mercurial branch.
It modifies linux/drivers/media/dvb/mantis/mantis_dma.c only.
I have compiled the patch against

cd mantis
patch -p1 < mantis_dma.c.aligned_dma_trs.patch

Please tell us whether my patch helps you or not: if it helps, some of 
my patch might get into jusst.de as
a fix for your problem.

Best Regards,
