Compiling gave me

/home/kls/vdr/KFIR/kfir-2.6-driver/kfir.c: In function `kfir_irq':
/home/kls/vdr/KFIR/kfir-2.6-driver/kfir.c:1996: error: break statement not within loop or switch

so I commented out line 1996.

I then had it running for some time (until there were more than 110000 IRQs)
and all worked just fine).

Let me know if removing line 1996 is ok and whether you want to
make any further changes, so I can check this in to CVS.

Thanks again
