This only builds the ‘test_dqbuf’ executable, but doesn't run it. Trying to fails with:
usage: tests/test_dqbuf <videodevice>
i.e. it needs the kernel module to be loaded as we discussed on IRC. That's the norm for kernel drivers. For obvious reasons, loading them in the build environment isn't an option.
(Computers are magic and one could virtualise a kernel, similar to what we do with Xvfb for X11 tests, but it would work only for drivers that don't require any hardware and excuse me the word ‘overkill’ is knocking at the door.)

Double-spacing between sentences is mandatory in Texinfo, because we are all boomers.
I was just about to push with the edits below, but… OK. Done separately as fdcd193744dbb92d3478c8e4e6c4f4336a872831 et al.
Thanks!
