Ticket #9824 also included a change to RingBuffer::WaitForAvail which
effectively implements what is proposed in #10658. I have been using
this patch for over 14 months now with good effect on radio, SD and HDTV
streams played both locally and over 100Mbps Ethernet, 56Mbps WiFi and
200Mbps PowerLAN (20Mbs in practice) links. I haven't seen any problems

I see what Mark was getting at - he wanted a series of small patches
that he could easier understand. But some things don't work that way.
To get low bitrate DVB-S radio working needs all of those changes.
Applying a number of the changes on their own would have been
detrimental so that's why I posted the changes 'en masse'
