[media] dvbdev: Don't create indirect links
Indirect links are those whose interface indirectly controls other functions. There are two interfaces that have indirect controls at the DVB side: - the network interface, which also controls the demux; - the DVR interface which also controls the demux. One could argue that the frontend control to the tuner is indirect. Well, that's debatable. There's no way to create subdev interfaces for tuner and demod, as those devices are tightly coupled. So, it was decided that just one interface is the best to control both entities, and there's no plan (or easy way) to decouple both. So, the DVB frontend interface should link to both entities.
