Phew, after posting v2 of my patch "au0828: stop video streaming only when last
user stops" everything now works as it should, including the issue with two VBI
streams you found.

Should I take the selftest patch or will you take that yourself?

Let me know so I can make the pull request for this. It's been a long journey
since the first post on April 9th, 2014: "[RFC PATCH 0/2] managed token devres
interfaces".

Almost exactly five years of work!

Regards,

Hans
