[PATCH] DVB: Clarify description text for dvb-bt8xx in Kconfig

Patrick Keene wrote to the linux-dvb list, asking where in menuconfig he
can enable dvb-bt8xx for his AVerMedia DVB card.  I pointed the following
out to him:

config DVB_BT8XX
       tristate "Nebula/Pinnacle PCTV/Twinhan PCI cards"

It has been agreed upon that this description is extremely misleading.

This patch changes the one-liner description text of dvb-bt8xx to something
more meaningful, and adds AVerMedia to the detailed description.
