Ok, so I think I've managed to do this, by editing some source files.
I'm still hoping there is a clean way to do this, though.
So now I have all the *.ko files in /home/kls/vdr/DVB-v4l-dvb.2005-12-02/v4l,
but I can't seen to find out how to properly load them. There used to
be an 'insmod.sh' script before the v4l/dvb merge, but that's no
Does anybody know how to properly load the *.ko files?
Note that I do _not_ want to do "make install", because I
want to be able to have several driver versions in their
own directories, and want to switch between these by simply
placing a symlink. Therefore I need a way to load and unload
the modules from a given driver directory, without copying anything
