Not so easy. The main ivtv driver has already set up the PCI device and
done the mapping for the MPEG-2 decoder/video output engine. The video
decoder/output device nodes might already be open by user space calling
into the main driver, before the ivtvfb module is even loaded.
This could be mitigated by integrating all the ivtvfb module code into
the main ivtv module. But even then not every PVR-350 owner wants to
use the video output OSD as a framebuffer. Users might just want an
actual OSD overlaying their TV video playback.
