I am using debian sid and attempts to load the cx23885 module fail:

in dmesg:
cx23885: Unknown parameter `car'
(I use the card=4 option.)

The device:
02:00.0 Multimedia video controller: Conexant Device 8852 (rev 02)
        Subsystem: DViCO Corporation Device d618
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 10
        Memory at fbc00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2M]

        Kernel modules: cx23885

kernel version:

Note that this module came with the debian package:
linux-image-2.6.26-1-amd64      2.6.26-3

1.  Am I right that this is not supposed to happen?  May I conclude
that the packaged module is incompatible with the kernel it is packaged for?
If so, I can report this bug to Debian; but I want to make sure I have the
concepts straight before they shoot me down saying it is linuxtv.org's fault.

2.  I tried recompiling the module(s) using sources from linuxtv.org.  I used
http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb but the created modules still reported unknown
cx23885: disagrees about version of symbol videobuf_streamoff
cx23885: Unknown symbol videobuf_streamoff

There are actually various other mercurial repos hosted on linuxtv.org, which
one should I try next?

Thanks in advance!

Every hardware eventually breaks.  Every software eventually works.
