It seems some drivers don't report frontend status on frontend events
and instead require the use of the ioctl FE_READ_STATUS. VLC relies on
the first only, szap on the latter only.
The attached patch takes advantage of both. Does it solve the problem?
Though I still think that such drivers are broken and should be fixed.
