I've been quite tied up with other things[*] and mostly forgot about this, as I
don't have the affected hardware. Last I talked to Devin, he hadn't had time to
work on it either, and various other higher-priority tasks had taken precedence.

If you need it going soon, Devin and KernelLabs' services may be for hire:

This stick only has bulk usb endpoints and a max packet size of 512. Supporting this stick is actually going to require a fair bit of work in the em28xx driver core to support using bulk transfer instead of isochronous transfer.

I'm inclined to wait and let you do that part, since you know em28xx much better than I do, and I'll just focus on the device-specific implementation details (gpio settings, wiring up tuner and demod, etc). I'm assuming you have some other manufacturer's em2874/em2884 based devices to work on this for... :)
