In theory you just need your board profile properly defined in
em28xx-cards.c and em28xx-dvb.c.  If I were going to choose between
trying to make the old em28xx-new compile under the current kernel,
and adding the 10-15 lines of code to the in-kernel em28xx driver, I
would probably consider choosing the latter (and then feel free to
submit the patch to be merged upstream).
