No, that does not change anything. Around 20% of the cpu for vdr process
when browsing channels with left or right keys of my remote control.

I test this patch with vdr 1.3.27 and 1.3.28, same results.
I test with left and right keys (keyboard) and now the scroll is even
faster but it take around 35-40% of the cpu (with or without the patch).

With text2skin and Enigma again, i notice no changes with this patch :
40-50% of the cpu with remote and even 65-70% with the keyboard.

I note that browsing with the keyboard is very fast and no jerks as
with the remote control. It seems that some press on the remote control
are lost by vdr.
