[linux-dvb] How to compile the firmware into the driver?

I have downloaded the latest driver snapshot from

   http://linuxtv.org/downloads/snapshots/v4l-dvb-20051202.tar.gz

and the latest firmware from

   http://linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622

and expanded the driver source into

   /home/kls/vdr/DVB-v4l-dvb.2005-12-02


What is the simplest method to build this driver and have
it compile the firmware into it?

I tried writing

CONFIG_DVB_AV7110_FIRMWARE=y
CONFIG_DVB_AV7110_FIRMWARE_FILE=./dvb-ttpci-01.fw

into /usr/src/linux/.config and create a symlink in
/home/kls/vdr/DVB-v4l-dvb.2005-12-02/linux/drivers/media/dvb/ttpci

-rw-r--r--   1 kls users 239956 Dec  4 13:13 dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622
lrwxrwxrwx   1 kls users     20 Dec  4 13:13 dvb-ttpci-01.fw -> dvb-ttpci-01.fw-2622

but apparently that doesn't impress the make process.


Is there a simple trick to do this?

Klaus
