When I was bisecting a recent defect which required a dozen or so
recompiles + hitting lots of compile failures at each bisect, I just
edited v4l/.myconfig, setting everything to ":= n" except those modules
required by the dvb card I was testing as confirmed by the modules.dep

I expect this method is not foolproof due to the non-obvious dependencies
Devin mentions above, but it worked for me and sped the process up by an
order of magnitude.
