I actually was doing this mistake, but I could not tell at first
look!  I believe that things should work differently when
building a Linux kernel.  A "make mrproper" fixed things.

What created the problem is this, I had compiled kernel and
modules once, before running the makelinks script, and for some
reason having changed the source file of the DVB modules did not
trigger rebuilding of the object files of the modules.  With a
complete recompile of the kernel things worked fine.

Not sure if this issue happens because the Unix date of
dvb-kernel files symlinked by the makelinks script is not
recent, but this definitely should be documented in the
README-2.6 file.  A nice "make mrproper" before running the
makelinks script, that's it.

Bye, Luca
