Correct, its officially in the upstream kernel as of 2.6.30, but I've  
been patching the driver into Fedora kernels since around 2.6.27-rc8-

- Add driver for Hauppauge HD PVR

- 2.6.27-rc8-git8

I initially put it in for my own selfish reasons -- to use with my own  
HD PVR -- but figured other Fedora MythTV users might benefit too. :)
