[linux-dvb] Re: Problem with compiling in

Before the frontend code was refactored, the frontend modules were
independent parts of code. The big problem was that there was no way for
type-safe communication between the hw-driver and the frontend module.
Another disadvantage was that lot of hardware dependent code was inside
the frontend module.
Hi I like to have everything compiled into my kernel however I notice
that when I do this with the latest dvb drivers in the mm kernels the
tda1004 and stv0299 are both compiled in automatically when budget-ci is
I have no need for stv0229 so why is it being selected?
Now frontend modules are more like libraries, exporting only some
well-known defined functions. Because of this, there is now a functional
dependency between the hw-driver and the frontend modules. Today, all
frontends that this hardware supports need to be loaded. Yes, a small
amount of memory is wasted but this is negligible.
