Although this isn't a single-liner, most of the code in cxusb-analog.c are
simple implementations of v4l2 and videobuf2 callbacks - only the buffer
management code is a bit more complicated.

From all the devices cxusb driver supports it looks like only Medion 95700
and FusionHDTV5 USB have an analog part.

However, FusionHDTV5 USB has a different tuner and a different digital
frontend, doesn't support power off command, has a different USB interface
number for digital mode than Medion and requires upload of a firmware upon
plugging in (while Medion doesn't), so it's unlikely the current code for
Medion would work for it without significant changes.

For example like splitting this part into two:
1) one that adds required analog support to cxusb with functions that are
provided by cxusb-analog.c (analog init, register, unregister) replaced
with stubs,

2) the second one that actually provides correct implementations via
cxusb-analog.c?
