[media] Fix build when drivers are builtin and frontend modules
There are a large number of reports that the media build is not compiling when some drivers are compiled as builtin, while the needed frontends are compiled as module. On the last one of such reports: From: kbuild test robot <> Subject: saa7134-dvb.c:undefined reference to `zl10039_attach' The .config file has: CONFIG_VIDEO_SAA7134=y CONFIG_VIDEO_SAA7134_DVB=y # CONFIG_MEDIA_ATTACH is not set CONFIG_DVB_ZL10039=m And it produces all those errors: drivers/built-in.o: In function `set_type': tuner-core.c:(.text+0x2f263e): undefined reference to `tea5767_attach' tuner-core.c:(.text+0x2f273e): undefined reference to `tda9887_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `tuner_probe': tuner-core.c:(.text+0x2f2d20): undefined reference to `tea5767_autodetection' drivers/built-in.o: In function `av7110_attach': av7110.c:(.text+0x330bda): undefined reference to `ves1x93_attach' av7110.c:(.text+0x330bf7): undefined reference to `stv0299_attach' av7110.c:(.text+0x330c63): undefined reference to `tda8083_attach' av7110.c:(.text+0x330d09): undefined reference to `ves1x93_attach' av7110.c:(.text+0x330d33): undefined reference to `tda8083_attach' av7110.c:(.text+0x330d5d): undefined reference to `stv0297_attach' av7110.c:(.text+0x330dbe): undefined reference to `stv0299_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `tuner_attach_dtt7520x': ngene-cards.c:(.text+0x3381cb): undefined reference to `dvb_pll_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `demod_attach_lg330x': ngene-cards.c:(.text+0x33828a): undefined reference to `lgdt330x_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `demod_attach_stv0900': ngene-cards.c:(.text+0x3383d5): undefined reference to `stv090x_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `cineS2_probe': ngene-cards.c:(.text+0x338b7f): undefined reference to `drxk_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `configure_tda827x_fe': saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x346ae7): undefined reference to `tda10046_attach' drivers/built-in.o: In function `dvb_init': saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x347283): undefined reference to `mt352_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x3472cd): undefined reference to `mt352_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x34731c): undefined reference to `tda10046_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x34733c): undefined reference to `tda10046_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x34735c): undefined reference to `tda10046_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x347378): undefined reference to `tda10046_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x3473db): undefined reference to `tda10046_attach' drivers/built-in.o:saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x347502): more undefined references to `tda10046_attach' follow drivers/built-in.o: In function `dvb_init': saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x347812): undefined reference to `mt352_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x347951): undefined reference to `mt312_attach' saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x3479a9): undefined reference to `mt312_attach' >> saa7134-dvb.c:(.text+0x3479c1): undefined reference to `zl10039_attach' This is happening because a builtin module can't use directly a symbol found on a module. By enabling CONFIG_MEDIA_ATTACH, the configuration becomes valid, as dvb_attach() macro loads the module if needed, making the symbol available to the builtin module. While this bug started to appear after the patches that use IS_DEFINED macro (like changeset 7b34be71db533f3e0cf93d53cf62d036cdb5418a), this bug is a way ancient than that. The thing is that, before the IS_DEFINED() patches, the logic used to be: && defined(MODULE)) struct dvb_frontend *zl10039_attach(struct dvb_frontend *fe, u8 i2c_addr, struct i2c_adapter *i2c); static inline struct dvb_frontend *zl10039_attach(struct dvb_frontend *fe, u8 i2c_addr, struct i2c_adapter *i2c) { printk(KERN_WARNING "%s: driver disabled by Kconfig\n", __func__); return NULL; } The above code, with the .config file used, was evoluting to FALSE (instead of TRUE as it should be, as CONFIG_DVB_ZL10039 is 'm'), and were adding the static inline code at saa7134-dvb, instead of the external call. So, while it weren't producing any compilation error, the code weren't working either. So, as the overhead for using CONFIG_MEDIA_ATTACH is minimal, just enable it, if MODULES is defined.

- bool "Load and attach frontend and tuner driver modules as needed"
- depends on MODULES
- default y if !EXPERT
- help
- Remove the static dependency of DVB card drivers on all
- frontend modules for all possible card variants. Instead,
- allow the card drivers to only load the frontend modules
- they require.
- Also, tuner module will automatically load a tuner driver
- when needed, for analog mode.
- This saves several KBytes of memory.
- Note: You will need module-init-tools v3.2 or later for this feature.
- If unsure say Y.
