OK, answering my own post, because I see what happened. And it sucked. 
And I want others to know about it.

My kernel got updated, along with all my mythtv packages.  The ivtv 
packages has the kernel version in it, but when you install a new 
kernel, it doesn't upgrade ivtv.  So when I rebooted, ivtv didn't load, 
and mythbackend must have said "Oh, that card doesn't exist anymore. 
Let me remove all it's programming"!! DOH!!

Is this really a desirable "feature"?  Can't it leave them in but 
disabled or something?

Fortunately, I have a system backup from just 10 days ago, so I only 
needed to restore that and make a few changes.
