[linux-dvb] Thoughts about supporting more complex tuners

OK, after consulting with Manu a bit, my original idea isn't going to work 
well. Here is an updated patch.

The initialisation sequence would now be:
struct dvb_frontend *fe = stv0299_attach();

The stb6100 attaches itself to the stv0299 using the (*attach_tuner)() 

After that, the stv0299 is then responsible for controlling the PLL - so this 
really just becomes a standardised/expanded way of how we do it already.

Main reason being - many of the enhanced demod tuning algorithms will need to 
control the tuner directly - my idea of the frontend loop doing this just 
isn't flexible enough.
