[linux-dvb] [PATCH] Multi protocol support (stage #1)

After some rework landed up with a patch like this.
- the ATSC and DSS have not been included in the new implementation, to
make it look a bit simpler initially, if it is found okay we can add
them both in the same way.
- we use the FE_SET/GET_PARAMS instead of FE_SET/GET_FRONTEND in order
to maintain backward compatibility
- we now implement driver specific algorithms using the tune() callback
(we need the math functions)
- we set the delivery system on each tune call, such that each tune can
be on a different delivery system, rather having an additional IOCTL to
do FE_SET_PROTOCOL/DELIVERY etc. (we save on an additional IOCTL). A
requisite for demods with multiple delivery systems
Currently it has a dependency on the tuner_refactor_patch in
I have removed the demux related patches and the rest of the stuff (in
this stage) to make it a bit easier to comprehend.
