Hmm... on a second thought, it could make sense to only auto-select
the sensor drivers if MEDIA_CAMERA_SUPPORT, and to only auto-select
tuners if MEDIA_*_TV_SUPPORT is selected.
However, in this case, we'll need to dig into all Kconfig autoselect
options in order to make it right.
I guess we should also likely need to document to the user that the
driver won't be fully supported, as we'll be changing the behavior
of the menus.
