Sorry, the bit about 'bands' was a bit of a red herring ... I take it there
is no high-level documentation apart from the source files !

I can understand the existing code at the 'micro' level, but in terms
of creating a new functional driver from the ground up, i.e.
necessary structures, function pointers, arrays etc to be filled in ?!

I guess just a lifecycle model for the components of a 'complete but empty'
[i.e. all structure fields active, but no 'device code' apart from comments]
frontend & demux would be useful.

If I make progress on this I will feed it back ...

Regards,
MikeW
