Hi Mike,

Thanks for the review! I will incorporate your suggestions and get a new
patch out in a day or so.

This got introduced with the patch to allow the output mode to be
configured:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commitdiff;h=a38d6e37c0bc073bae5eff37c939978974ea9712

It looks to be making sure the patch didnt regress anything at the time.
Unfortunately it means we always set it to OUTMODE_MPEG2_FIFO. The patch
above just allows both OUTMODE_MPEG2_FIFO and
OUTMODE_MPEG2_PAR_GATED_CLK to be set.

We could shuffle the output modes around and make 0 the default
(OUTMODE_MPEG2_FIFO), or just go in and add initialise the output_mode
field in all dib7000p based drivers.
