Well, it's been a while so I don't remember the details, but I think the
same now as then ;-)
The idea behind CONFIG_DVB_USB_AF9005_REMOTE was to provide an
alternative implementation (based on lirc, at the time it wasn't in the
kernel), since this adapter doesn't decode the IR pulses by itself.
In theory you could leave it undefined but still provide an
implementation in a different module. Just adding

#ifdef CONFIG_DVB_USB_AF9005_REMOTE

would nuke the (futile?) effort.

Now, since the problem seems to be with CONFIG_MODULES disabled, maybe
you could combine both conditions

#if defined(CONFIG_MODULE) || defined(CONFIG_DVB_USB_AF9005_REMOTE)

Bye
