    It seems that the mjpeg stuff will be in the wrong place when it starts
    being used by non-DVB modules. I see the two (DVB and mjpeg) as
    distinct entities - like ethernet drivers and ipv4. (DVB drivers should
    let you change channels and whatnot, mjpeg drivers should allow you to
    decode data streams from any available source.)
