This interface was removed in the mainline in 2.6.23(-rc1).

I now took the "current" version of dvb-add-firesat-driver.patch from 
(this is the version you used plus device-recognition.patch from 
http://firedtv.bbackx.com/index.php?q=node/5 ), also applied Ben's other 
patch for DVB-S on DVB-S2 devices, and then applied your patch.  I got 
two rejects which looked trivial.  I also removed all trailing 
whitespace from your patch.  The result is temporarily available here:

Henrik, could you please test if this version still works?

Also, please look at the changelog of 
04-firesat-update-isochronous-interface-add-ci-support.patch and send me 
a Signed-off-by line for it if everything is OK.  Also remember to add a 
good changelog and your Signed-off-by (with the implications as stated 
in linux/Documentation/SubmittingPatches) when you send additional patches.
