Thank you for queuing this for ... I was just looking at the 2.6.15 sources, and I realized that this should also go to 2.6.15.y, if there are any more yet to come.

Please also add this to the 2.6.15.y queue, if there are any more releases planned.

Thank you,

Subject: Kconfig: VIDEO_DECODER must select FW_LOADER

The cx25840 module requires external firmware in order to function,
so it must select FW_LOADER, but saa7115 and saa7129 do not require it.
