Description a1bert 2017-11-10 10:06:14 UTC
affected kernels: >=4.9

affected architecture: ALL? (confirmed: arm(rpi3), x86)

symptoms: 

after upgrade from pre 4.9x kernels to 4.9 and above (4.13.12 affected too) I am experiencing corruption (green artifacts) of DVB-S FullHD streams captured by USB of PCIe DVB-S cards (confirmed on DVBSky S950,  DVBSky s960 DVB-S2):

after stopping stream capture/replay for serveral seconds it recovers (but if the the interruption is short ie 1 sec it does not recover)

SD (low bitrate?) streams not affected (or I did not wait enough?)

Not sure if it's DVB stack problem since it looks like it's  I/O ((disc) dependent: the problem manifests after tens of minutes when just displaying DVB stream (cca 90mins) but with heavy disc I/O in serveral minutes (< 10mins)
