[linux-dvb] MSI TV at nywhere A/D v1.1 patch

I've updated the patch with the suggested changes and the card still 
functions correctly.

I've also spent some time testing things. S-video and Composite inputs 
work. The radio also seems to be working fine (it can find channels when 
I scan, but I haven't tested the audio output).

One improvement I can think of with supporting this card is to skip 
trying to boot the tda10046 from eeprom because there doesn't seem to be 
an eeprom on this board for the tda10046. This would speed up the 
initial driver load, but it's certainly not an important issue.

Here is the patch description:

This patch adds support for the MSI TV at nywhere A/D v1.1 card.
