I said I would but I didn't have much time yet? 

however, I didn't see any big issue. no semaphore like in dvb_frontend.c. 
just some kill(0) that looks harmless.

neither do I.

below is an updated version of herbert's dvb_frontend.c patch for 2.6.19-mm1
  
thanks,

C.

From: Herbert Poetzl <herbert@13thfloor.at>

Okay, as I promised, I had a first shot at the
dvb kernel_thread to kthread API port, and here
is the result, which is running fine here since
yesterday, including module load/unload and
software suspend (which doesn't work as expected
with or without this patch :), I didn't convert
the dvb_ca_en50221 as I do not have such an
interface, but if the conversion process is fine
with the v4l-dvb maintainers, it should not be
a problem to send a patch for that too ...

best,
Herbert
