No, the ivtv cards don't use that module, and the corresponding one doesn't
seem to be doing anything similar.  Though, I think that some of those cards
support uncompressed capture with v4l as well (i.e., they can look like a
normal bttv card), and if you were using them that way, then yes, they would
suffer from the same problem.
