Hi Tim, try this:
rename the stock modules and then run
# /sbin/depmod -a



I had thought of that, and tried it.  The resulting modules.dep file
contains (for the cx8800 module, for example):

/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/v4l2/cx8800.ko: \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88xx_old.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/i2c/algos/i2c-algo-bit.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/media/video/v4l1-compat_old.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/media/video/v4l2-common_old.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/media/video/videodev.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/v4l2/cx88xx.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/media/video/video-buf_old.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-core.ko \
/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/kernel/drivers/media/video/btcx-risc_old.ko

which looks like its still trying to use some of the stock modules (I
suffixed all the stock modules with _old.ko).  Is this correct/safe?

Well, certainly not the best method, but IMO it's ok. Since you just renamed the modules, they are still found, but AFAIK not used. If you do modprobe cx88xx it should insert the module found in /lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435/v4l2/

Cheers,
Hannes.
