Kernel 2.6.38 was just released for Debian Testing users in the past week;
they had been using kernel 2.6.32.  Those users are now afflicted/affected
by the V4L changes if they use older capture cards.  (I'm one of them.)

After just now doing a "git pull" of 0.24/fixes and applying the patch from
I am now able to access my PVR-500 as when I was using kernel 2.6.32.  (I
was not able to use it before applying the patch.)

So the above patch is A Good Thing.  My two cents.
