Would it be too early or too unorganized if we would start with such a 
dir-structure immediatly, but not by moving all existing files, but only 
with new drivers/to-be-rewritten drivers (such as the lgdt330x). (all of 
course after the dir-structure has been discussed enough)

I'm more or less working on a driver for the tda10086 which uses a more 
complex pll (TDA8263, does not fit into a current dvb_pll_desc) and a 
lnb-programming-chip (lnbp21). I would love to put these 3 modules into a 
different dir-structure, rather than putting it all into frontends/.

Patrick.
