Oops, I didn't get that post earlier.

You're right, I'm doing an internship at Anevia. We will use the same 
policy we used earlier: as we modify code to fix bugs in drivers, we 
send the matching patches in the mailing list. My predecessors did so, 
and I already fixed a bug on KNC1 TV Station DVR; I sent my patch to 
Gerd Knorr (official maintainer of v4l), who commited it in latest v4l 
cvs snapshots. If we can contribute to the open source community, we will.
I hope this answers your question.
By the way, this answers Manu's question about why I use latest v4l cvs 
snapshots: I needed so, for the KNC1 bug I had to fix. That's the only 
reason. But I also think it's a good thing to test many combinations of 
drivers.
