* changed more structs to name-based initialization (from test11 patch)
* Added kernel args for the most important bttv insmod options, based
on Werner Almesberger's patch.
* Added insmod option to set the tuner type to bttv (yes, that's a bit
redundant with the tuner module's option, but this way it works with
two cards having different tuners too).
* more fixes for card descriptions.
* updated the triton1 compatibility code: moved into bttv-cards.c,
created a new function for it, reworked and commented the code.
Added a list for chipsets, seems the triton1 isn't the only chipset
which needs this. Added the via apollo to the list.


If someone else has a board which needs the triton1=1 insmod option to
work stable with bttv just drop me a note (don't forget to include the
PCI ID for the Host bridge), I'll add it to the new blacklist then.
