Default Bug#506758: linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64: boot hang caused by bttv driver with twinhan vp-1020

Package: linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.26-10
Severity: important


Current linux kernels contain an issue that renders the dvb-bt8xx driver
unusable for cards without an EEPROM (like mine). I described the
problem in
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12066
My DVB card isn't properly detected by the kernel and, as I described in
the kernel bugzilla bug report, causes the kernel to crash when loading
the bttv kernel module, which is automatically done by udev on my debian
lenny installation.

I'm currently using a patched 2.6.27 kernel, but I just tested the
newest debian linux-image and the problem still exists.
