I just needed that because my irblaster was not supported by the
current kernel. The fix was just recently placed in the git and went
into 2.6.39-rc1. I am sorry for any confusion I have caused. I am not
sure how to fix your kernel settings because I have not used the in
kernel ivtv driver for years. I was using the v4l-dvb-hg ebuild which
supplied the ivtv driver however it quit compiling at 2.6.38. The
media-builds was actually pretty easy but there is no ebuild.

I have to go for now (dinner with the wife) if you do not figure this
out I may be able to help with the media-builds if you want to try
that direction..
