  please backport pvrusb2 fix for FX2 16KB firmware

Status in Mythbuntu, Ubuntu derivative focused upon MythTV:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The current pvrusb2 driver doesn't work with recent HVR-190x firmware.

  -> The kernel error is:

  pvrusb2: wrong fx2 firmware size

  -> Here's the thread discussing the problem in 9.10


  -> This is the text describing the update:

  A new pvrusb2 driver snapshot is available.  The one change is:

   (+) Further fix to support use of larger FX2 16KB firmware.  Missed
       one spot in the firmware loader and forgot to include HVR-1900
       alongside HVR-1950 in the set of devices which could load the
       larger firmware.

  Thanks to Gary Francis for keeping me honest - including the extra
  push to make me actually pay attention to his patch which is the
  change described above.

  And sorry for missing this before.

  This snapshot also includes the snazzy new fwextract.pl along with
  updated documentation.

  As usual, the pvrusb2 web site can be found at:
