[kernel] Video input device support is not enabled by default

It is possible to use USB video input devices on the Freerunner, as documented here: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Webcam

It would make the whole procedure easier already if video input device support was enabled by default in the kernel. The kernel used in my tests was 2.6.24+git (I have no access to the exact version string right now, sorry). The distribution was Debian Lenny, but with an official Openmoko kernel; this should therefore apply to every Openmoko distribution.

We can add the base video bits as modules easily enough, I am not sure what we should do about randomly making all webcam modules though. Maybe someone on the packaging side has a view on it.
