    SubjectRe: default y idiocy
    Hi Jan,

    All the submenus bellow are dependent of VIDEO_DEV (Video4Linux core).
    If someone wants V4L, it is very likely that he will select a radio or a
    video adapter, since the subsystem is useless without the drivers (*).

    (*) Except if you are using an out-of-tree driver.

    It should be noticed that selecting the "Drivers" Kconfig items won't
    produce any code. No drivers are marked with default.

    Those items are just used to better organize Multimedia menu. The result
    of having 'y' is just to have the submenus open by default. For me, it
    makes sense to keep default y, especially if we consider the arguments

    This is also the same case for DVB drivers submenu:

    menuconfig DVB_CAPTURE_DRIVERS
    bool "DVB/ATSC adapters"
    depends on DVB_CORE
    default y
    Say Y to select Digital TV adapters

    Just to keep the entire menu coherent, "default y" were added for DAB:

    config DAB
    boolean "DAB adapters"
    default y
    Allow selecting support for for Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB)
    Receiver adapters.

    if DAB
    config USB_DABUSB
    tristate "DABUSB driver"
    depends on USB
    A Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) Receiver for USB and Linux
    brought to you by the DAB-Team
    <>. This driver can be taken
    as an example for URB-based bulk, control, and isochronous
    transactions. URB's are explained in

    To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
    module will be called dabusb.
    endif # DAB

    It is fine for me to remove "default y" for DAB, although i would prefer
    to have it marked as 'y' just for coherence.
