You could easily use dvb-kernel from CVS (see 
http://www.linuxtv.org/cvs.php for instructions).

Deactivate DVB support in your kernel. Compile it. Before running "make 
modules_install" clean the kernel-module-directory 
(/lib/modules/2.6.x/), so that hotplug don't use the unwanted kernel 

Compile the dvb drivers inside the build-2.6-directory in dvb-kernel by 
running make. And load them by invoking "./insmod.sh load".

That's it :).

best regards,
