[linux-dvb] Nova-HD-S2

I'm attempting to get my Hauppauge Nova-HD-S2 working on my Linux machine.

When I follow the installation instructions for the HVR4000 (no multifrontend, 
no multiproto)I encounter the following error message when the system tries 
to load the videodev module:

WARNING: Error inserting v4l1_compat 
Invalid argument
FATAL: Error inserting videodev 
(/lib/modules/2.6.25-gentoo/kernel/drivers/media/video/videodev.ko): Invalid 
module format

The commands I used to build the modules are:

hg clone -r 127f67dea087 http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
wget http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/v4l-dvb-hg-sfe-latest.diff
patch -d v4l-dvb -p1 < v4l-dvb-hg-sfe-latest.diff
cd v4l-dvb && make && make install && reboot

My system is x86, with 2.6.25-gentoo kernel, gcc-4.2.3 and glibc-2.7-r1 
although I've also tried kernel 2.6.24-gentoo-r2.

Any suggestions as to what I might try next? A vanilla kernel maybe?
