6279 does not compile.

make -C /home/wn/v4l-dvb/v4l
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/wn/v4l-dvb/v4l'
perl scripts/make_config_compat.pl /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/source
./.myconfig ./config-compat.h
File not found:

make[1]: *** [config-compat.h] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/wn/v4l-dvb/v4l'

After trying a bit I figured out 6266 does compile. Everything between
6279 and 6266 does not. I can tell you that with 6266, the common 
interface works, I hope that's enough info.
