I've had a quick test:

CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT=y
CONFIG_MEDIA_SUPPORT_FILTER=y
CONFIG_MEDIA_SUBDRV_AUTOSELECT=y
CONFIG_MEDIA_DIGITAL_TV_SUPPORT=m
CONFIG_DVB_CORE=m
In this set, all the module depends on DVB_CORE
will be =m even if I manually change .config.

I'm not sure which config or module would build failed if DVB is module,
but IMO, any module has explicitly depends on DVB_CORE would follow the
configuation of DVB_CORE, and
the only possible case which build failed should be those
modules need to depend on DVB_CORE but didn't explicitly write
in Kconfig.
Also, I have no idea why someone needs DVB_CORE=m but other modules
depend on it need =y.

If anything I can test please tell me, thanks.


Thanks,
Lecopzer
