The Media subsystem has a set of configuration options
that control the visibility of other options, the
latter group associated to device driver enablement.

In other words, it currently has two levels:
"support" options and "driver enablement" options.

The "support" configuration options currently are:

* Analog TV support
* Digital TV support
* Camera and grabbers support
* AM/FM radio support
* HDMI CEC support
* SDR support

The "device driver enablement" options are:

* USB devices
* PCI devices
* Platform-specific devices
* Memory-to-memory devices
* DVB devices
* CEC devices
* SDR devices
* ...

In order to simplify the above, refactor the media configuration,
mostly by dropping the "support" options, which don't seem to
be really required.

In other words, the following are removed: MEDIA_ANALOG_TV_SUPPORT,
MEDIA_DIGITAL_TV_SUPPORT, MEDIA_CAMERA_SUPPORT, MEDIA_RADIO_SUPPORT,
MEDIA_CEC_SUPPORT and MEDIA_SDR_SUPPORT.

As a result, the configuration is now simplified. Users
will find USB capture devices under "Media USB Adapters",
or CEC adapters under "CEC platform devices", without
the need to enable any other "support" options.

Nack.

Those *_SUPPORT options were added to make life easier for users.

There are too many things to be customized for a poor user to
select the right options. So, from an end-user's perspective,
what he really wants is:

	"let me enable my TV card"
or:
	"I want to enable camera support"

They usually don't know what driver supports it, nor what are
the other drivers that should be enabled behind the scenes.

Those options helps the users to reduce the amount of options
for them to identify what they really bother, instead of 
presenting thousands of options they would need.

Now, if you, instead, add some patch that would allow them
to do something like:

	make board=<usb id> / make board=<pci id>

Then this would be very welcomed.

Hello Mauro,

Thanks for your prompt reply!

Well, at least I got your attention on this topic :-)

Do you think end-user's configure their own kernel?

I was under the assumption an end-user would use
a distribution kernel. And distributions would take care
of packaging what end-users need.

Hm, I see.

So, another option is to clean memory-to-memory devices
(codecs). There are no end-users for these devices,
and they aren't really "Cameras/video grabbers".

I am not sure why we've added them under CAMERA_SUPPORT.
I'd love to get rid of at least that dependency.

They actually do, either directly or via media-build tree.

Good question. Probably because people just re-used what it
was there without thinking too much.

I remember someone once proposed adding an option to add
a "MEDIA_EMBEDDED" (or some other name) that would 
just allow setting everything as if those other *SUPORT
koptions didn't exist.

something like this would do the trick:

	CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED
		bool

	config MEDIA_CAMERA_SUPPORT
		visible if !CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT
		default y if CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT

	config MEDIA_ANALOG_TV_SUPPORT
		visible if !CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT
		default y if CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT

	config MEDIA_DIGITAL_TV_SUPPORT
		visible if !CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT
		default y if CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT

	config MEDIA_RADIO_SUPPORT
		visible if !CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT
		default y if CONFIG_MEDIA_EMBEDDED_SUPPORT

Regards,
Mauro

I just want to share my experience teaching kernel dev to students at https://lkcamp.dev/

There are just too much information in menuconfig, using a lot of terms,
and people get overwhelmed.
So, when they need to enable something in menuconfig, they search for the item with
the slash / tool, and trackdown dependencies, searching one by one
to enable all of them.

So they don't navigate through the menu, since they want to enable one
specific thing, and they don't want to keep searching and reading all the entries
in menuconfig.

And having MEDIA_CAMERA_SUPPORT is just another dependency to trackdown, so I would
rather not having it.

I don't think it is just that, there are two steps:

    1. "let me enable my TV card"
and:
    2. "I want to enable my specific TV card now"

or:

    1. "I want to enable camera support"
and:
    2. "I want to enable my specific camera now"

I understand that, to execute the second step above, less
options would be nice.
But, If I compare the current menu with the proposed one (see below), the
"support" options doens't seem to be hiding much, and we could remove
one step for users.

Users need to know how to track dependencies anyway.

Several drivers requires "Media Controller API" for instance, which is not
intuitive for endusers, nor "V4L2 sub-device userspace API", and users
need to know this somehow.

So I suppose most of users checks the "Depends on" list throug the search of help tool,
and the "support" option is just another item on this list.

Or they just follow a tutorial on the internet indicating what should be enabled,
and we could remove one option/step for them to follow.


Another option would be to expose the drivers, and use "select" instead of "depends on"
in Kconfig.

I mean, we could have a menu you can enter down it:

[ ]   Camera/Video grabbers devices (NEW)  ----

And under this menu, list all camera/video drivers.
And selecting one of those, it would automatically select 
"Media Controller API" and/or "V4L2 sub-device userspace API".

So endusers would just say "I want this device enabled", without worriying about these
dependencies. But this doesn't seem easy to do (since it would require changes in all drivers).


Anyway, just put in my two cents.

Regards,
Helen
