it's ok to remove now.
when i wrote that part in ( ), i thought that xv drivers are mostly ok, just
need to replace xv's idiotic interface by something useful.
(with direct access to video mem)
i thought that if we follow xv driver structure, then porting xv drivers to
v4u (and make it widely usable and so more supported/developed) will be
easier. i still think it is, but looking at existing xv drivers' code
quality, it doesn't worth the mess, none of them is usable :(
