It is on my todo list. I've postponed it since it is valuable to have some
discussions about this driver.

The issue I see is that the V4L drivers are meant to support real devices. This
driver that is a loopback for some userspace driver. I don't discuss its value
for testing purposes or other random usage, but I can't see why this should be
at upstream kernel.

So, I'm considering to add it at v4l-dvb tree, but as an out-of-tree driver
only. For this to happen, probably, we'll need a few adjustments at v4l build.
