Description Ville Skyttä 2006-01-01 14:00:06 EST
I was wondering if the following headers could be included in future
kernel-devel packages:

- media/video/bttv.h, needed by LIRC's gpio dependent drivers
- usb/serial/usb-serial.h, needed by Gnokii's Nokia DKU-2 USB cable driver

Untested (because a FC devel CVS checkout doesn't seem to result in a buildable
setup) patch attached.

These out-of-tree modules really should be campaigning for upstream to move
these to include/.  The dvb stuff that was in the spec should also be doing the
same (fwiw, that's now been removed too).

We have to take this stand otherwise over time we'll accumulate more and more of
these special cases, and things become a real mess.  If a subsystem has an api
it wants out-of-tree modules to build against, it needs to make it visible.

Fair enough, thanks for the info.  Removing the dvb stuff clarifies things too.
