Bug#868511: linux-image-4.11.0-1-amd64: Please enable CEC drivers

Package: src:linux
Version: 4.11.6-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Starting with kernel 4.10 the HDMI CEC framework was mainlined in the linux
kernel. It would be very nice if this and the driver for the popular PulseEight
USB CEC adapter (https://www.pulse-eight.com/p/104/usb-hdmi-cec-adapter)
can be enabled in the 4.11 kernel config:

CONFIG_VIDEO_VIVID_CEC=y is also very useful and highly recommended as this
enables CEC emulation in this virtual video driver. This allows application
developers to test their CEC implementation without having CEC hardware.

In kernel 4.12 the RainShadow driver (similar to the popular PulseEight
USB CEC adapter) should also be enabled: CONFIG_USB_RAINSHADOW_CEC=m
