  Fix  for suspend/hibernate with DVB-t USB stick

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Terratec Cinergy T USB XXS DVB-t USB stick, but when you
  suspend the system while a radio or TV channel is actively playing in
  some application, the system does not correctly suspend the device.
  The system will not wake up again and you have to reset the computer.
  This bug exists for at least 3 year and likely people with similar
  DVB-t USB sticks will be affected as well.

  I have created a failure proof workaround solution for VLC by creating
  the script /etc/pm/sleep.d/50_dvb_usb_dib0700_quirk:


  PASS=<enter password for LUA telnet access to VLC>

  case "$1" in
   # check whether a stream with "telx" (Teletext) is active or not
    if [ "`{ echo $PASS; echo "info"; } | netcat localhost 4212 -q 1 | grep -c telx`" -eq "0" ]
     { echo $PASS; echo "stop"; } | netcat localhost 4212 -q 1 > /dev/null
    modprobe -r dvb_usb_dib0700
    sleep 1
    modprobe dvb_usb_dib0700
    # automatically start playing after wake up
    { echo $PASS; echo "play"; } | netcat localhost 4212 -q 1 > /dev/null
  *) exit $NA
