Running mythfilldatabase suggested even with EIT-only sources

mythfilldatabase (MFDB) does not need to be run on MythTV systems using only EIT data collection.
Historically, this was not the case when the relevant housekeeping code was contained within MFDB, but since this was moved into the backend the requirement to run MFDB with EIT sources no longer exists.
mythtv-setup currently exits with the message:
"If you've added or altered channels, please run MFDB on the master backend to populate the database with guide information"
This message is invalid if using EIT and may add additional confusion to users configuring MythTV.
