The dvbdev patch is pretty important, fixes a horrible problem, although the case for
it to occur is rare.  The other two patches are of the "obviously correct - minimal change" 

If it isnt too much trouble, then yes, it is worth it to push a new release because of the
dvbdev patch.

However, please chop the "backported from" and "cherry picked from" lines from those patches.
I cherry-picked them from Mauro's tree, but he wiped it out and re-pushed those changes in
before Linus merged them....  so, the actual changesets in Linus' tree have different hashes.

(i removed those old hashes from the patches that I posted on

As for the 2.6.20.y patches, should I email those to you inline or can you just grab them from
the www server?  ( )
