yes, we can go for your second patch without any risk.

It even will work, but I'm wondering if I would have to buy such card,
to get it through. Thanks for your time to review that.

Never mind. I'll keep you posted when it comes to further progress on
such and input_init2 is the needed better solution.

We have a whole chain of previously latest different Asus cards
supported by PCI subsystem identification, only this single one fails on
it and needs eeprom bogus detection.

On the Pinnacle stuff we have a complete mess, concerning LNAs, likely
even different LNAs, no LNA at all, different remotes etc., all with the
same PCI subsystem.

You can't even detect the LNA type, if you would know the meaning of the
complete eeprom content, since some to us unknown check-sums are in use
for that.

That I try to tell.

You are welcome,
