Diffs for linux kernel 2.6.24 and the current v4l tip attached.

The change for the current top of tree is minimal - just a few lines in the 
static configuration data of cx88-cards.c.

The changes for 2.6.24 parallel the changes made for audioroutes in the 
current tip.

Note the changes to cx88_alsa.c to remove the tuner volume control if there's 
no TV tuner and to re-group the switches more logically.  I was thinking of 
adding some code to adjust the WM8775 gain - what do you think?
