Hello!
The following patch for Kernel 2.6.19-rc3 contains three functions:
1. synchronizes bt8xx.txt to the current graphical Kernel compilation menu
2. make module dvb-pll.c deselectable as it is not necessary for Pinnacle PCTVSAT
3. get rid of static backend dependencies for dst.c and dst-ca.c (TwinHan Cards)
Effect of 2. and 3.: You save Memory!

I think that the current concept of one common backend for bt8xx cards is completely
obsolete. There should be a couple of card specific backends that can be selected and deseleted
as needed. The big effect would be saving RAM!

Cheers
Uwe
