Most of the drivers and interfaces are built as loadable kernel modules.
Which is what the ivtv "driver" is.

The /lib/modules/<kernel name> is where kernel modules live. .ko files
and .ko.gz files are loadable kernel modules. In the dir with the ivtv
files, take note of the file names. search under that
entire /lib/modules/<kernel name> directory for files with the same name
(like tveeprom). Those are the ones to rename to prevent a clash. Once
done, run "depmod -a" (without quotes) to update the module dependency
list. Then when it tries to load the tuner and such, it will get the
one from the ivtv build.
