You mean the v4l-dvb tree from linuxtv.org, right?

Maybe it is a problem with the v4l-dvb tree. Some time ago it didn't 
work for me with everything enabled but I had success with only those 
modules enabled which I needed for my hardware. You can run "make 
menuconfig" in the v4l-dvb directory and disable everything except what 
you really need.
