[vdr] VDR with S2API (device API extension)

the S2API implementation would be a perfect place to integrate my 
frontend facilities patch in a way or another.

The patch simply extends the current cDevice API to include some common 
frontend related statistics (now available only in femon), so that skins 
and all the other plugins can easily use them. This would simplify the 
femon plugin and also would enable skin plugins to show for example 
signal strength, snr, bit error rate, etc., in channel info window.

Also other input plugins (IPTV, pvrinput, analogtv, ..) could implement 
these new methods and therefore provide some feasible information for 
femon (or any other plugin) to show up.
