Two more patches got merged into the v4l-dvb mainline today:

em28xx: cleanup XCLK register usage
9744 http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/0ad0eccb9e51
em28xx: Cleanup GPIO/GPO setup code
9745 http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/d80d3da52f90

Watched House.

Spent pretty much the whole evening debugging my xc5000 patches with mkrufky over AIM. Fixed the cx88 race condition we found on Sunday. There's still some issue with that XREG_BUSY register though, and changing the timing from 100ms to 5ms broke analog support on the Dvico FusionHDTV 7. It's *so close* to working though.

That's turning into a descent size patch series (10 so far).

Pinnacle was kind enough to introduce me to someone over at Xceive who I am talking to next week. I'm hopeful that we can work something out with the firmware redistribution rights for xc5000, xc3028, and xc3028L. This will make it *so* much easier for Linux users as the firmware would be bundled with the distributions. They would be able to just plug in their device and start watching TV.
