Good morning, DVB USB changes I have been working are now ready at my point of view. All changes are here: http://git.linuxtv.org/anttip/media_tree.git/shortlog/refs/heads/dvb-usbAnd here is some numbers I just took, in order first old version then new. I converted those 6 drivers (af9015, af9035, anysee, au6610, ce6230, ec168) during the development in order to see results and test functionality.

Legacy remote and Cypress firmware download routines are functionality dropped out. Otherwise just some feature additions, many bug fixes and rather largely changed functionality. I tried to keep it close old as much as possible like naming but still did not keep backward compatibility in order to make it clean and small. So it should not consider as 1:1 replacement, not even possible to convert old drivers without having a hardware in hands.
It implements all new features I planned. Suspend/resume is not 100% ready as it needs some work for DVB-core. It just kills streaming when suspend to make it happen even when streaming, but does not handle power management which needs to be done in DVB-core.
Also all bugs I was aware should be fixed. For example deferred firmware downloading (interoperability issue between DVB USB driver and udev), locking to sync frontend control and frontend streaming as there was race condition (aka bug "dvb-usb: error while stopping stream.").
Feel free to comment, lets try to fix if there is new findings or small feature addons.
