Both, the kernel headers are supposed to add defines so that it is safe
to include them outside the kernel, and applications like MythTV are not
supposed to include kernel headers directly.

Because you have DVB enabled, and the DVB headers are not yet a 
part of most Linux distributions, we grab them from the kernel.
If you want to fix this you can copy the DVB headers from your
kernel into /usr/include/linux and set that as you DVB includes
directory when you run ./configure.
