See pat.c, cCaDescriptors::GetCaDescriptors() and ci.c, cCiCaPmt::cCiCaPmt()
and cCiCaPmt::AddPid().

CA descriptors are given either on the "programme level" or at
the "elementary stream level". Depending on where is the data stream
VDR finds them, the StreamFlag is set accordings.

Apparently there is a stream that has CA descriptors in both places.
Maybe somebody else knows how to handle this. The implementation I
made back then just tried to mimic that which the original firmware
of the FF DVB cards did.
