[linux-dvb] kernel configuration: CX88 and RealTime kernel rt22.

Hi,

I applied patch-2.6.29.5-rt22.bz2 to a copy of my running 2.6.29.5
kernel and I find that this removes support for CX88.  This is
my first attempt at compiling/using the real-time kernel.

Just running 'menuconfig' without selecting other option purges
CX88_DVB from the .config file.

pc3:/sa107/wa_rlx/linux-2.6.29.5-rt22$ cp /c/boot/sa103/config-2.6.29.5 .config
pc3:/sa107/wa_rlx/linux-2.6.29.5-rt22$ grep CX88 .config
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_ALSA=m
# CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_BLACKBIRD is not set
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_DVB=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_MPEG=m
CONFIG_VIDEO_CX88_VP3054=m
pc3:/sa107/wa_rlx/linux-2.6.29.5-rt22$ make menuconfig
scripts/kconfig/mconf arch/x86/Kconfig
#
# configuration written to .config
#


*** End of Linux kernel configuration.
*** Execute 'make' to build the kernel or try 'make help'.

pc3:/sa107/wa_rlx/linux-2.6.29.5-rt22$ grep CX88 .config
pc3:/sa107/wa_rlx/linux-2.6.29.5-rt22$


All symbols with CX88 have disappeared from the .config file.

Trying menuconfig and xconfig, both seem to know about CX88_DVB
but there is no way to find 'Conexant 2388x' driver.

Was this intended by the CX88 team or is it just just an error from
the real-time team?  This is not that I absolutely need the realtime
kernel, but I am just curious, and a number applications including
'jack' would be happier with it.
