It is working for me on a 4.9 box.  It has been working for some versions
back too.

Here is my dmesg...
bktr0: <BrookTree 878> mem 0xee203000-0xee203fff irq 7 at device 16.0 on pci0

bktr0: Hauppauge WinCast/TV, Philips FR1236 NTSC FM tuner, msp3400c stereo, remote control.

The only thing I added to my kernel conf was...
device          bktr0  
device smbus
device iicbus
device iicbb

BTW... I am the author of tuneradio and use it for a number of FM
stations that I stream.
