OK, well this WILL help you:

I have added the makelinks functionality from dvb-kernel into v4l-dvb
a few weeks ago, but I don't ever test this build method, so it may be
broken...  If anything's wrong, it may be some broken #includes to
compat.h or i2c-compat.h -- If you have these problems, feel free to
submit a patch, or show us the build errors and maybe we can fix them
for you.

To do it: "make kernel-links"

Once again, this feature is undocumented, mainly because nobody has
the time to maintain it , to make sure that it still works, (although
it might) , and it WILL totally bork your kernel sources, (but you
know this, as dvb-kernel's makelinks script did the same)

Hope THIS helps,
