I just noticed this on the Gossamer Threads list and wondered if it's
been handled here. He mentions it should be fixed in the 220.127.116.11
kernel but it would be good to confirm that's really happened. I'm also
a little unsure just he means by "ported". That doesn't necessarily

When porting ivtv to 2.6.20 I discovered that I got errors when loading
the cx25840 module and that that module couldn't load the firmware
I've just discovered that changes in 2.6.20 brought a cx25840 bug to the
surface (it was always there). I've made a patch and pending some
testing it should end up in 18.104.22.168 (it's a pretty serious bug after
all), but this means that cards with a cx2584x won't work with 2.6.20
unless you manually apply the attached patch.
If you have a saa7115-based card (pvr250/350), then it will work fine.
The ivtv trunk has been patched as well to support 2.6.20.
Next kernel cycle I really should do some tests before the kernel is
