I like the idea of sharing the database. This probably will mean that
snd_bt87x would be dependent of bttv driver (or a bttv core driver).
This have the advantage of helping also to fix some conflicts with dvb
bttv driver.

This change, if agreed by all, will require some extra work. The better
is to commit Trent's patch first. Then, we can work on re-designing bttv
driver in a way that the database can be shared, without needing to load
the entire bttv drive.

Probably, we should first push the bttv v4l2 series of patches before
starting this change at bttv.
