It should be easy to combine them if the proper way of integrating the tuner
frequency setting is done. I didn't know how to do it and didn't have much
time to investigate. The tuner frequency is set through the frontend
registers. I have also modified the multi read / multi write arguments to
allow different value for len than actual data len (some bits seem to be
reserved for other purpose like if it's a write or read and possibly to
extend the address space)
For the other fixes in the previous message, that code was already in the
nxt2002 I believe, except for the spaces issue.
Possibly the other nxt200x chips are quite similar too so it could make sense
to have a single driver. I didn't know before I had finished figuring out how
to configure the chip and there is possibly a few things that could be
removed in the current register settings.
