will test it with Ubuntu 13.04 and 13.10

Update 25jan2014

Ubuntu 12.04 kernel 3.8.4 working
Ubuntu 12.04 kernel 3.11.1 working
Ubuntu 12.04 kernel 3.12.1 working

Ubuntu 13.04 kernel 3.11.1 working
Ubuntu 13.04 kernel 3.12.1 working
Ubuntu 13.04 kernel 3.13.0 fails to compile

Febr 2014

With newest drivers and Ubuntu 13.10 kernel - 3.13.2 it compiles good and after
sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/
sudo make install
It loads alright, i assume all lower versions will work too
