The s626 (comedi) driver in staging conflicts with philips SAA7146 media/dvb
based cards, because it claims the same vendor:device pci id for all
subdevice/subvendor ids. What happens is that for people that have a philips
SAA7146 based card, s626 if available gets loaded by udev and makes system
freeze (

Looks like s626 shouldn't claim all 1131:7146 devices, either by specifying
specific subdevice/subvendor ids specific to s626 devices or doing additional
checks in its probe/attach function.
