parentV4L/DVB (7075): Make a local function static (diff)
V4L/DVB (7077): bt878: remove handcrafted PCI subsystem ID check
This patch moves the subsystem ID and subsystem vendor ID check from probing function to the PCI generic function by describing subsystem IDs in pci_device_id table. This enables to add new PCI IDs to a device driver pci_ids table at runtime by new_id file in sysfs pci driver tree.
