Oh... WOW...  When I last had time to work with the driver, which was a 
couple of years ago, I had a patch moved that line.  But it also moved 
the INIT_WORK and queue_work calls to occur before the HDPVR was sent 
the start streaming command.   I have no idea now why I didn't send it 
in with the other patches I did then.   Mauro Chehab's patch is simpler 
than mine.  I'll give his a try and probably give mine a try again too.

Thanks much,
