Yes. Seems like the right thing to do.

I didn't do it initially, because I think the code wasn't seriously
compiled for a long time. The ivtv kernel driver has been merged into
V4L in 2007. Don't know how long after that, older kernels with IVTV
were in use...

Anyways, I contacted Ben privately. I will be waiting for some time
if I receive a reply. I don't think we are in a particular hurry to
remove that code.
