it would be awesome if the pvr250/pvrxxx ports would not depend on
kernel-patching anymore. it is the most common compile problem for
these drivers. and people come on to the list asking the same old
question over and over again.

the problem with the iicbb-patch of pvr250 is that about a year ago,
only a part of iicbb was patched to what the iicbb-patch is about. so
when patching these kernel-trees, this particular patch is reversed
and the kernel does not compile anymore.

i have attached a patch that should work for Dicky's problems. i hope
it applies cleanly to the 7-branch as well ( i don't know ).

fetch a fresh kernel-tree, and then:

#cd /usr/ports/multimedia
#rm -rf pvrxxx
#fetch http://usleepless.110mb.com/pvrxxx_port.tgz
#tar xzf pvrxxx_port
#cd pvrxxx
#make patch-iicbb

and recompile and reinstall your kernel.

this port should patch your kernel with the aforementioned patch (with
any reverses). it doesn't need any firmware files in distfiles since
it loads the firmware from ivtvdriver.org. i should update the
pvrxxx-port with this version, i know.

Julian, if you need any help with the attached patch, or it doesn't
apply, plz contact me. thanks!
