NAK! This option allows to compile the firmware into the _driver_,
which is very useful if you want to test various driver/firmware
combinations. Having the firmware in the _kernel_ does not help!

Well, I am tired to fight for this option in the kernel every other
month. :-(

@Mauro:
Is there a way to strip this stuff from Kconfig/Makefile/av7110*.[ch]
for submission to the kernel? Basically I don't care whether and how
they cripple the driver in the kernel. But I would like to keep the code
'as is' in the linuxtv repositories.
