I guess it is as official as it can currently be ;)

Yes, indeed, good catch. Also the latest ivtv rpms (in bleeding) have
a very simplified configuration.

http://atrpms.net/name/kernel-testing/, available if you turn on the
"testing" section of ATrpms. Note the "-testing" :)

Yes, or you can use the rpms build for kernel 2.6.7-1.437_2.rhfc2.at

No, the kernel version goes on including the "_<subrelease>.rhfc2.at"
suffix. While means it's the <subrelease> release of the ATrpms'
kernel based on RH's 2.6.7-1.437. There are currently only two
changes: v4l2 patches and the 8kstacks.

No need for you to rebuild anything, just use the
2.6.7-1.437_2.rhfc2.at versions. But if you do build a kernel yourself
for whatever reason, you will have to also build the needed kernel
modules (which include nvidia-graphics and ivtv).
