Fix the demux, add a worker thread and allow drivers to call it directly.

I'm not a big fan of videobuf_dvb or having each driver do it's own thing as an 

Fixing the demux... Would this require and extra buffer copy? probably, but it's 
a trade-off between  the amount of spent during code management on a driver by 
driver basis vs wrestling with videobuf_dvb and all of problems highlighted on 
the ML over the last 2 years.


Then deprecate sw_filter....N() methods.

That would simplify drivers significantly, at the expense of another buffer copy 
while deliver-payload() clones the buffer into its internal state to be more timely.
