The development has been split off for 3 years from the original
repository. The internal driver differs alot.
The full history of that driver can be seen when looking at:

that code back then got split out of the linuxtv repository and moved to:

The driver has a long and rather bad history, which I'd like to avoid
by using the different directory.
Some patches got ported from my repository into the kernel although
most devices don't work at all with the current inkernel driver (eg.
em2888, flash based, isdb-t, cx25843, some saa7114.. based devices).

here's some development status history starting in 2006.
moved over to a mailinglist and support people from 2007 - currently

there's almost nothing of that work merged yet, and there are tonns of
howtos out there which are based on all that right now.
