Subject: [PATCH 2/7] Media: Do not change default values in EXPERT mode

Expert mode was designed to toggle visibility of options and not to
change their behavior. If a user wants to tweak a single value and
enables EXPERT mode to do this, he will have several unexpected
side effects when other subsystems toggle their default values based
on EXPERT mode. This makes EXPERT pretty useless.
