PCTV 290e usb dvb devices fail in linux > 3.12.2 because of some upstream change.

Additional info:
* linux > 3.12.2
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Attach pctv 290e device and boot kernel linux 3.12.3; see errors like

kernel: tda18271 3-0060: creating new instance
kernel: tda18271_read_regs: [3-0060|M] ERROR: i2c_transfer returned: -19
kernel: Error reading device ID @ 3-0060, bailing out.
kernel: tda18271_attach: [3-0060|M] error -5 on line 1285
kernel: tda18271 3-0060: destroying instance

in logs. The video device(s) are present but don't work.

I have reported this to; also have tested a
developer suggested fix

which appears to correct the problem (at least for linux-3.12.4).
This task depends upon
