Thanks. Thank you. While I don't know the DVB system, I will assume that this has been properly reviewed upstream and I can verify that it matches. Therefore I've applied these changes and enabled building these drivers as modules. [...] > 2) a MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE() entry has been added to the two PCI drivers > to allow them to autoload.
