linux/video_decoder.h lost, drivers for Plextor ConvertX PX-TV402U no l Debian



Back in the days of Debian Etch, one could use the code and patches
(5, 6, 7, and 8) from Bender647's page:

to compile a driver for the Wis chip Go7007 (i.e. Plextor ConvertX
PX-TV402U). No longer.

In squeeze, we get:

linux/video_decoder.h seems to be missing. Apt-file shows a file
named video_decoder.h in the libxine-dev package, but as soon as I
tried to pull that in things got real ugly.

Any idea what happened to video_decoder.h, or how to proceed?
