Michael Krufky asked me to rename tda18271-tables.c to tda18271-maps.c. Due to
that, the MD5 sum changed.
Also, I've added some newer patches. One of them is reorganizing DVB frontends.
The other moves some other tuners that are also capable of working with both
analog and digital terrestrial.

Those are the current changesets:
