I'm definitely seeing some messages from this patch; no CRC errors
slipped through on EIT/ETT tables yet, but it's not like I can produce
one on demand :-) I'll leave it running today and get back to you this
Even if there's some other problem with the drivers' CRC checking or
with how we're requesting it, it seems to me that this check is a good
idea. I suppose it would be reasonable to blast that bit to 1 and see
if the CRC then passes (in the unlikely event it was the only damaged
bit), but that's probably too much trouble.
