Which is not good. Each driver should be required to norm its signal
statistics, e.g. to a percentage. Only the driver can "know" how to do
this, and if the driver doesn't do it, the application can't do it either.

The Linux API should define exact value ranges for every statistic which
every driver would be required to scale its hardware readings to. Then the
statistics would actually be useful to applications for display purposes.
