Kernel-version ? Newer kernels allow you to set v4l subsystem to

I have a surveillance card with saa7134 chips. It should be able to
see 8 cameras at a time, but there is only 4 video devices in /dev of
These devices are working fine, each device's channel 0(there isn't
any other channel of these devices) is an input for a camera.
So, how could I manage it to be 8 devices?
Caveat: All this is from memory, ~24hours old.
