Keeping it in sync is not hard. Most changes are just small API changes
that are easy to port to all drivers, since they all behave likely.
Also, when kernel hackers changes API, they usually send patches fixing
API also at the affected drivers (of course for not-broken stuff).

If you are interested on fixing this driver, you may submit the fix
patch to me, with your SOB. I'm maintaining the V4L subsystem as a hole.
