Actually, I went back last night and verified that 2.6.8-1.521 resolves
the ivtv-fb crashes for TV-Out with PVR-350s, but it doesn't fix the
X through TV-Out problems.  So something definitely changed to correct
things.  I'd imagine all the fbcon changes had something to do
with it, but I haven't gone through the diffs yet (there are a few
there in doing a brief viewing of the tree).

I also re-built the 2.6.9-1.681 kernel with
set to 'm'.  I then tried 0.2.0-rc3b and the current ck100zz drivers,
and also tried ivtvdev_drv.o at 0.6 and 0.7.  Nothing's worked so far
as far as the X problem is concerned.

I'm going to work forward on the X revision lists between FC2 and
FC3 (last known) and see if there's something there now.
