The hardware provides two values:
* AGC: For now the AGC feedback value (14 bit) is returned unchanged.
* ERR_db: Also available is a 10-bit value representing the signal level
difference between AGC-Reference and received signal level (most likely in
If an absolute value is needed: I don't get it how to calc absolute signal
levels from AGC-Reference.
so code for now:
mt312.c: agc-feedback 0-0x3FFF
