Tested today on a Sun Ultra 10. I've noticed 2 problems:

I cannot reproduce it on Ultra 60. Anyway, since this is a parport-specific option, it is probably reasonable to just disable it for the next upload and look for a proper solution later.

2) bttv works now with the Jetway bt878 tv card but the machine locks
up completely after a few minutes. Keyboard doesn't respond, the
machine doesn't respond to ping. The only solution is a hard reset. Any
suggestion would be appreciated.

Sorry, can't really offer much. Do you see anything in the logs? 'modinfo bttv' shows quite a few debugging parameters, you can try enabling them and see if more information becomes available. Also there should be some upstream mailing list for development of this driver.
