This is now commit f90cf6079bf67988 ("media: vidtv: add a bridge
driver") in the media tree.

noreply at ellerman.id.au reported the following error for an m68k
allmodconfig build:

     ERROR: modpost: "__udivdi3" [drivers/media/test-drivers/vidtv/dvb-vidtv-bridge.ko] undefined!

Presumably this fails on other 32-bit platforms, too.

Seriously?!?

You multiply by 1000 first, followed by a division by 1000 using an
expensive 64-by-64 division?

drivers/media/test-drivers/vidtv/vidtv_mux.o: In function `vidtv_mux_tick':
vidtv_mux.c:(.text+0x788): undefined reference to `__udivdi3'

This is a 64-by-32 division, hence it should use a helper from
<linux/math64.h>.

However, I'm wondering if "nbytes_expected - nbytes_streamed" is
guaranteed to be a "small" number, hence a 32-by-32 division would be
sufficient?

Likewise.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
