dst module. It is a module for a DVB card that combines the frontend and the 
card.. The card get's detected by udev, but not the frontend..

If i don't use udev, everything is fine i have to create the DVB entries 
manually by the MAKEDEV script along with linux-dvb dvb-kernel CVS.
 
I have written a dst_ca module ontop of that.. A conditional Access driver

A lot of people have been querying for the udev issue..

It is a BT878 card and there are differences in how the card is detected, 
since i2c communication also is inverted for that card, loading the module 
improperly would freeze the machine.
