This seems to be a good idea.
I suspect that this can now be replaced by VIDEO_DEV, on webcam/radio drivers
or VIDEO_MEDIA for hybrid V4L/DVB drivers. Btw, I think we can replace
VIDEO_MEDIA into just MEDIA.
This will solve several troubles. Still, I think that there are still some
other missing dependencies (like INPUT, on drivers that select IR).
I can't see any trouble on this approach. Feel free to work on it.
