[linux-dvb] Patch 1 / 2: make dvb-pll.c deselectable

In the current Kernel the module dvb-pll.c ist statically linked with all frontends for bt8xx cards. This is not good. The Pinnacle PCTVSAT does not need this module. The proper place for this patch is the mm-tree to make sure whether there are other bt8xx-cards around apart from the PCTVSAT that DO NOT NEED this frontend module. It DOES NOT HURT! So please imply it!
