MythTV has a bunch of these too (mainly so the code can adapt to
driver bugs that are fixed in later revisions). Putting Mauro's patch
upstream will definitely cause breakage.

Also, it screws up the ability for users to get fixes through the
media_build tree (unless you are increasing the revision constantly
with every merge you do).
