Now now, v4l2 is still under development (kind-of). v4l(1) is not being broken
here... We musn't get in the way of progress eh? ;-)

I just did some checking on what is in my kernel (debian 2.4.22-1 + v4l2 patch
numbers 19 and 20), and as far as I can tell, your "Userspace clean" #ifdef
looks like it is in there.
To check this out I have copied the kernel header over the myth header, and am
rebuilding now. I'll feed-back probably tomorrow on the results. Is there a
particular version I should test on? (I am currently rebuilding myth-0.11)
