Reinhard Nissl made me aware of the fact that with recent versions
of the driver from http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb there is apparently
someting wrong with the header files. Doing

#include <linux/videodev2.h>
#include <linux/dvb/audio.h>

results in

.../linux/dvb/audio.h:79: error: 'uint16_t' does not name a type

Doing the #includes in reverse order gives

/usr/include/sys/select.h:78: error: conflicting declaration 'typedef struct fd_set fd_set'
/usr/include/linux/types.h:12: error: 'fd_set' has a previous declaration as 'typedef struct __kernel_fd_set fd_set'

The only way to compile VDR with the recent driver is to revert to
the header files as they were before the change labeled

"backport include changes on some .h files"
