Tuner module is too verbose

I upgraded from my previous kernel (2.6.10-mm1) to 2.6.12-mm1 today.

I have a problem with the "tuner" module : it is printing too many
messages into the syslog :

"tuner 2-0060: Cmd VIDIOCSCHAN accepted to TV"
"tuner 2-0060: Cmd VIDIOCGAUDIO accepted to radio"

(about 26 messages per second, but only when watching TV)

I looked into the module's source code and I was able to disable those
messages with a little modification (patch included).
(maybe the same modification is needed when CONFIG_TUNER_MULTI_I2C is

I don't know if this is the good way to do this, but I didn't find any
other way to solve my problem...

PS : I'm not subscribed to the list so please CC me.
