The first patch in this series change the em28xx to don't
require coherent memory for DMA transfers. This should bring
some performance gains on non-x86 archs.

The other patches in this series are results of my tests
with the first patch :-)

patch 2 does some cleanups at i2c and Xclock speed settings.

Patches 3 and 4 do something that I'm intending to do for a
long time: it constifies most static structs inside the driver.
Before that, the cards list were modified in runtime, with is
a bad idea when multiple (but different) boards use the same
entry (for example, a webcam and a em28xx capture "generic"

Patch 5 solves a FIXME.

Patch 6 was written by Arnd, as a way to solve an issue with
KASAN: without it, more than 4Kbytes were spent at the stack,
with can cause very bad things. He sent it sometime ago.

As I answered when the patchset was sent, I didn't like very
much that approach, as a way to solve KASAN, as the real solution
is to improve the I2C binding logic inside this (and other)
drivers. Yet, it brings a nice cleanup at em28xx.

So, patch 7 does that! It is something that I'm wanting to do
for a long time, but only today I found the needed time: it 
adds helper functions at the DVB core in order to bind/unbind
I2C modules to a driver. It is aligned with the new I2C
binding work made by Antti.

Patch 8 converts em28xx-dvb to use the new dvb_module_probe()
and dvb_module_release() fuctions, with caused a reduction
of almost 10% on the size of this module!

A side effect of patches 7 and 8 is that we don't to use
noinline_for_stack "black" magic there anymore, with is a
good thing.
