This patch enhances the driver check code to allow non-ivtv v4l2 HW MPEG encoding cards (e.g. cx88-blackbird) to use the pvr access module.

As far as I know our v4l2 access module doesn't support encoding cards
yet. So a small change in the pvr module indeed looks easier for the
time being. (I agree that in the long run it'd be better to have
everything v4l2 related in the v4l2 module)
