Modify saa7134_board_init2 so that the manual tuner type setting isn't
ignored. The first thing it does is to overwrite the current value
(set earlier from module parameter) with the static values... even
before trying to autodetect it.

In saa7134-core.c saa7134_initdev:
 dev->tuner_type   = saa7134_boards[dev->board].tuner_type;
+dev->tuner_addr   = saa7134_boards[dev->board].tuner_addr;

In saa7134-cards.c saa7134_board_init2:
-dev->tuner_type   = saa7134_boards[dev->board].tuner_type;
-dev->tuner_addr   = saa7134_boards[dev->board].tuner_addr;

I think that will fix it.
