I found some oddities in the patched szap code -- fixing them doesn't seem to
change anything, but maybe they cause odditites elsewhere (or maybe I'm
1. do_tune() sets fe_params.delsys.*.fec = FEC_AUTO;
but the type of the fec member is dvbfe_fec rather than fe_code_rate_t --
shouldn't it be set to DVBFE_FEC_AUTO instead, especially because the value
is not the same?
2. Similarily, there's INVERSION_* vs. DVBFE_INVERSION_* --
dvb_frontend_parameters takes a fe_spectral_inversion_t which matches
the use of INVERSION_* in patched szap, but DVBFE_INVERSION_* is
introduced by the multiproto patch and is set inside the kernel module
if dvb_force_auto_inversion is on.
3. Nothing in do_tune() sets fe_params.delsys.*.modulation -- but
0 is DVBFE_MOD_NONE. Shouldn't it be set to DVBFE_MOD_AUTO
(or DVBFE_MOD_QPSK/DVBFE_MOD_8PSK depending on dvbs vs. dvbs2)?
If the modulation parameter is there for DVBFE_GET_PARAMS only, it should
probably be pointed out in a comment in the header (the way it is done for
