Thanks for pinging, yes, I'll submit this, but as long as the kernel
doesn't ship ivtv it wasn't a high priority. But I guess F7 will soon
go 2.6.22 which will have ivtv, so it should definitely make it into
devel now. I think I had you cornered as a reviewer? :)

BTW I hope the licenses are OK, as I wrote them. They were derived by
permission from Intel's licensing text and ratified by the vendor's
legal department.
