Ok, I agree to let it go to drivers/staging/media/.

Like I mentioned, SC2342 includes many functions, this patch is only
adding FM radio function included in SC2342 to the kernel tree. So I
figure that its lifetime probably will not be too long, will remove it
from the kernel tree when we have a clean enough version of the whole
SC2342 drivers for the official upstreaming.
