With regards to the dst, i have explained earlier to you that

1) the dst is not a frontend
2) i do not wish to use the frontend attach methods with regards to

To mention, we had these discussions much long back how to go about it
and don't think that every time a new developer get's an account with, this has to be a matter that has to discussed to death

(eventhough of not much concern) If you now see most of the code in
dvb-bt8xx especially the DMA stuff was refactored from the dst driver.

But that said, the dst *is* different, so WTH ?

Please show me where this change makes your work more difficult,
Trent's change is small and I don't see the problem where it seriously
affects your work.
