The Documentation in dvb-bt8xx.txt is not synchronized to the current graphical kernel compilation menu. This patch fixes the problem.
REMINDER: I already sent this in and it was ignored by Krufky and Mr. Morton too. What a shame! Its appropriate place is vanilla mainline, as there is no reason for testing it as part of the mm-tree! OK so far, Mr. Morton?
