I don't know about Ubuntu 10.10 specifically, but I know that some
Ubuntu revisions have an /lib/modules/`uname -r`/updates directory
which can contain newer versions of some modules (provided by Ubuntu).
 Those typically override whatever gets installed by v4l-dvb.

You may wish to run:

find /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ -name hdpvr.ko

and make sure that the only file returned is the one that you just installed.

Also, if you have updated your kernel since you checked out the code,
it's possible that the v4l-dvb tree is installing the files into the
old kernel.  In that case, do a fresh checkout of the v4l-dvb tree (or
run "make distclean").
