as dvb-s2 will come along shortly we should be prepared.

this is a first patch within a series that will appear to support 
dvb-s2 within the different apis.

it just adds the new fec modes and the dvb-s2 rollflag enums.

enumeration value from the fe_caps definition and adjusted all values.
applications must be recompiled. this is imho fine.
if we want to keep binary compatibility we can not ask the frontend if it is capable of the 
new modes - thus support would be impossible then.

information taken from dvbsnoop by rainer scherg (rasc) and axel katzur.

if nobody will complain i will commit this patch tomorrow evening.
