Description SpanKY gentoo-dev 2011-03-18 19:26:46 UTC
since V4L1 is no longer provided by the kernel, the user space header has been removed.  so udev now build fails:
  CC     extras/udev-acl/extras_udev_acl_udev_acl-udev-acl.o
extras/v4l_id/v4l_id.c:31:28: fatal error: linux/videodev.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[2]: *** [extras/v4l_id/v4l_id.o] Error 1

simple fix is to not build that code anymore
