I mean the *patch*.
Could it be applied to the tumbleweed kernel tree?
No, I won't apply patches which are not upstream yet, sorry. (Unless they are about security.) And DVB tree is sometimes slow to propagate :(.
So i could test and report back, as the author doesn't have the hardware for testing.
I can build you a kernel for testing, if you want.
Yes, that would be great. I'm using the x86_64 desktop tumbleweed version.
Could you revert the broken 3.0 patches back to the 2.6.39 version of this driver for further tumbleweed kernels until fixed upstream?
I don't think so. Hopefully it won't be that long before it gets upstream. You can branch kernel:stable project to the revision just before 3.0 update, if you want.
I don't understand what you mean with "branch kernel:stable project". Can you give an example to me?
