I recently updated mailman on the server in order to fix a problem with
date headers while in digest mode. I thought before that attachments had
been working. I'll poke at it.

What I was hoping to see was that perhaps some alien I2C modules were
trying to attach to the pvrusb2's I2C bus in the broken. But that clearly
is not happening here.
I diff'ed your log snapshots and the only substantial difference (as you
point out) is the loading of the firmware. To answer your earlier
question, it is not required that the pvrusb2 driver load the device's
controller firmware every time. Basically, once the PVR USB2 hardware has
its firmware (pvrusb2.f1 in this case) downloaded, then it never needs to
be loaded again until the device is power cycled. So what you observed is
not necessarily wrong. Unfortunately this doesn't get us any closer to
understanding the problem.
An interesting experiment might be to power cycle the PVR USB2 hardware
when the em8300 driver is present. In that case, the pvrusb2 driver MUST
load the device's firmware and you should see that in the log. If that
still isn't happening, then we've got a strong clue to investigate.
