While this change looks simple enough, not sure if this would work
for all possibilities. If I'm not mistaken, someone proposed
something similar to it, but it caused troubles with different
configurations. I don't recall any patch addressing it, but I
may be wrong.

Tf I remember correctly, the problem rises when either V4L or DVB
core is compiled as module and the other one is compiled builtin.
On such scenario, all drivers that depend on both should be
compiled as a module, or the build will fail.
