[linux-dvb] [PATCH] Building of kernel's config programs

The part of the v4l-dvb build system that builds qconf/mconf/lxdialog et al
doesn't work if you have a pristine kernel source tree, or for older
2.6 series kernels.  Actually, it doesn't work at all for me.

This patch uses a different way to build these programs.  In a nutshell, it
adds a new makefile, v4l/Makefile.kernel, that includes the kernel's top level
makefile, then adds some more targets to it.  This interfaces to the kernel
build system at a higher level, and so avoids problems created by low level
changes in kernel building.  It builds the config programs exactly the same
way the kernel would.

It should work for all 2.6 kernels so far, from 2.6.0 to 2.6.17.
