3.5.7.3 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Malcolm Priestley <tvboxspy@gmail.com>

commit ab1dd9963137a1e122004d5378a581bf16ae9bc8 upstream.

Calling RFbSetPower with uCH zero value will cause out of bound array reference.

This causes 64 bit kernels to oops on boot.

Note: Driver does not function on 64 bit kernels and should be
blacklisted on them.
