[linux-dvb] [RFC:PATCH] Build system improvement

Guys,

Since the old CVS days, the building system for V4L/DVB assumed that all
required kernel dependencies were compiled. This is bad, since some
obsoleted stuff might be required, without need (like, for example, OSS
support for saa7134_oss, cx88_oss that were replaced by saa7134_alsa and
cx88_alsa).

With the inclusion of radio devices, some very unusual modules were also
required, to compile miropcm20 (the miro-pcm OSS mixer driver). 

The proposed patch adds the capability to the building system for it to
check kernel's config.h and autoconf.h at kernel building tree,
identifying all options used during kernel compilation time. Those
options will now be reflected on Kconfig.kern and at make all building.

Please test and give us some feedback.

Cheers, 
Mauro.
