You might be interested in a patch that I just pushed up into my compat
tree:

http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mkrufky/compat?cmd=changeset;node=4b2fea984b11;style=gitweb

This patch fixes backwards compatability for the tea575x-tuner module,
for kernels 2.6.17 and earlier.  This is the basic idea for implementing
backwards compatability for older kernel versions.  It is preferred,
however, to use compat.h for this kind of thing instead of using
#ifdef's the way I had to do here.  I had to do it this way in this
case, because there currently is no compat mechanism for alsa modules in
compat.h .... If you look further into changeset history, or even take a
look at v4l/compat.h , you might get a better idea of what needs to be done.

If the link is broken by the time you click on the link above, it's
possible that Mauro will have already merged it into master, after which
I will remove that compat repository from my development area.  When
that happens (but not until then) you should be able to find the same
patch in the master repo after being merged:

http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb?cmd=changeset;node=4b2fea984b11;style=gitweb

^^ I repeat, this link will not work until after the changeset is merged
into master.

Good Luck,

Michael Krufky
