It would be an excellent idea to change this title to:

MA (MEDIA-AGNOSTIC) USB HOST DRIVER

Otherwise to me it looks like the Massachusetts USB HOST DRIVER, since
MA is the 2-letter abbreviation for the state where I live. A
two-letter acronym is just too generic; you mustn't expect people to
understand it.

No need for this line; n is always the default setting unless you
specify otherwise.

And I insist that you insert "Media Agnostic" in here somewhere, either
in the "tristate" line or in the help. Without this, people trying to
configure their kernels will have no idea whether or not they should
enable the setting because they won't know what MA-USB is.

It also wouldn't hurt to mention in the help text that if the driver is
built as a module, the name of the module will be "mausb_host".
