There might be an easier way to get around this. I assume you load your 
module in the runvdr or a similar script at boot time?!

Add a line like this after loading the required modules:
/sbin/modprobe dvb
/sbin/udevadm settle --timeout=30

then start up vdr.

Everything should be fine since udevadm only returns after all actions 
regarding the module load are settled.
