This is one of the rare cases where the usage of KERNEL_VERSION is valid.
This is the code there:

#include <linux/version.h> /* for KERNEL_VERSION MACRO */
This macro is required by V4L API to indicate the module version.

One possible solution would be to fork KERNEL_VERSION into something like
V4L_VERSION, and replace it on drivers/media/video/* and
Yet, I'm not sure if it would be nice to have two macros with the same
