This snapshot is the result of more rework to fit into V4L. No functional
changes here; just more rearranging of the deck chairs...
Actually, that's not *quite* true. There are two saa7115 "glue" modules
now. The snapshot is set up to compile the old one (which is now in
pvrusb2-video-old.c), however the new saa7115.ko in V4L has a completely
different API and that required a rewrite. So pvrusb2-video.c has the new
version of that glue layer, but don't worry about that yet. As I said,
the build still uses the old ivtv-provided version.
As of this snapshot, there's a new Perl program in the utils area which
automates the snapshot process. With V4L in the picture things got too
complex to keep doing this manually. I doubt anyone else is going to care
about that script (and it is barely documented right now).
Please let me know if anyone sees any breakage here.
FYI, this snapshot still maintains all backwards compatibility.
