I just relalized that my previous email was in slight error..... I need 
to add
select DVB_LGDT3302 into the cx88-dvb section of Kconfig.

Anyhow, back to my previous point... cx88-dvb already had the #ifdef 
HAVE_FRONTEND ... I am just renaming this symbol to #ifdef 

when cx88-dvb is selected in kconfig, all four frontends will be selected.

What I am trying to do here is remove the #DEFINE from the top of the 
file, and have kconfig (or makefile) be in charge of selecting these 
frontends..... In the end, all frontends will be built anyhow.... It is 
just a matter of moving the selection into kconfig and out of the 
#DEFINE's in cx88-dvb (and saa7134-dvb).

I just got your email... looks like you already see what i mean.
