Yeah, definitely you could with that information.
You'd still need to know the exact setup probably - right now I'm sorting out
a windows driver to dump the saa7146 programming (including i2c devices).
That should let you nab everything you'd need to know.
I'd suggest having a look at some of the existing frontend drivers to see
what's needed... the stv0299 would probably be a good one since the docs on
that can be found on google, and its a fairly complete implementation.
