Sorry for late replay!
Some details on my system:
-kernel ver: 4.13.5 (custom build)
-DVB drivers: (kernel in-tree)
-DVB HW: DvbSky S952

I think idea with DB of HW+SW with defective DVBv5 implementation is nice idea.

But it think it will be also good to have cmd line option for forcing DVBv3 (i.e. —force-dvbv3-apis). 
This will allow to do quick test when user has traping kernel and we want to quickly test trap root cause by adding such cmd line option and see are kernel traps gone on not…
