Michael Hunold is somewhat busy with his new job at Toshiba, so I want
to takeover patch submission for now. However, one thing that makes it
difficult to create kernel patches from CVS is that there
are a large number of whitespace differences between the kernel tree and
CVS. There's also some corrupted indentation in the kernel, e.g.
I wanted to get this issue out of the way before I start
to submit other patches from CVS.

I merged some whitespace cleanups from the kernel into CVS,
and created a patch to clean up whitespace in the kernel,
removing lots of whitespace at end-of-line in the go.
The problem with this patch is that it is huge (600K) :-(.
I was crazy enough to mail it to Linus anyway on Sunday,
and it looks like it got dropped on the floor :-((

It would be nice if I could get some advice how to submit this kind of
cleanup (i.e. if I should split it up in tiny fragments), or if I
should ignore the issue for now and concentrate on functional

The DVB related patches submitted by Gerd are non-controversial
and should be applied.
