Ah, that's what I was trying to remember --

If you happen to have a snapshot of Markus Rechberger's
mcentral v4l-dvb-kernel before late November, when it
was replaced (due to being misleading and/or obsolete)
with a link to his em28xx source, you should also take
a look at that compat.h file, as it has quite a few
version checks to 2.6.9 and earlier.  That may also be

If you don't have this snapshot, I can send you a copy
of this file that I archived.

I'll pack them together and send you a personal mail
with a pointer to them, or an attachment, whatever
fits best...

The kernel panics my code gave me are not a NULL
pointer, but instead, a kernel paging request, that
looks as if it may be related to later-than-2.6.14-
hacks which I merged in.  Actually, there appear to
be several similar panics, as I appear to have been
tweaking the code during these...

I do get a NULL pointer panic from my attempt to
add support for one particular device to the 2.6.14
codebase, that I've tracked to one particular thing
I've been too lazy or preoccupied to finally fix.

(now to see if I can *find* those diffs...)
