You don't.

The v4l-dvb sources are maintained out-of-tree, and override whatever
is in the linux kernel tree.  Periodically, the v4l-dvb maintainer
syncs with the kernel tree and the changes are pushed upstream into
the mainline kernel.  This approach allows for the v4l-dvb project to
be used with kernel releases other than the current bleeding edge
kernel.
