add DVB-USB drivers to kernel

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Unconfirmed

Description

For whatever reason, the dvb-USB drivers are not shipped with openSUSE. Drivers are available (see e.g. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?p=4265470#post4265470 ) but at least not in 11.4, which makes use of DVBT-Sticks quite complicated

User benefit:

Makes life easier esp. for users with a lower level of experience. Searching drivers or building kernel modules by yourself is not something an average users does.

Usecase

Some of the USB-DVB-T stick just work out of the box if the right driver is available, e.g. my TrekStor Terres DVB-Stick using the dvb_usb_rtl2832u driver
