[media] ivtv-alsa: Remove EXPERIMENTAL from Kconfig and revise Kconfig help text
Remove the (somewhat meaningless?) dependency on EXPERIMENTAL for the ivtv-alsa driver. Revise the Kconfig help text to be a little clearer for the lay person, while we are here. Signed-off-by: Andy Walls <awalls@md.metrocast.net> Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@redhat.com>

- This is an ALSA interface driver for direct PCM audio capture from
- Conexant cx23415/cx23416 based PCI TV cards using the ivtv driver.
+ This driver provides an ALSA interface as another method for user
+ applications to obtain PCM audio data from Conexant cx23415/cx23416
+ based PCI TV cards supported by the ivtv driver.
+
+ The ALSA interface has much wider use in user applications performing
+ PCM audio capture, than the V4L2 "/dev/video24" PCM audio interface
+ provided by the main ivtv driver.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called ivtv-alsa.
