Default Kernel 2.6.20 and lifview trio support

I'm trying to get my DVB-S/T card to work which should be possible with the following kernel. But I can't seem to get it to be recognized by the system.

All I get is the analoge part of the card to work no dvb-s or -t shows up?!
I'm having problem identifying the correct parameters to configure (I have selected most of the available ones?!).

From Changelog of 2.6.20

V4L/DVB (4836): Added support for both DVB frontends of the Lifeview Trio

This card (like some others) supports both, DVB-T and a DVB-S.
The patch adds an insmod option to select the frontend:
use_frontend=0 -> DVB-T
use_frontend=1 -> DVB-S

Did you have to patch the kernel?
Any error messages, when you compiled the kernel? What's the output of
uname -a
