It's not just about PLLs, different frontend modules can require
different register settings for symbol rate and other stuff even if they
use the same demod chip.

I like this patch and I think it should be applied. It is a disadvantage
to have all the code and arrays duplicated in several drivers if we
could have it at a single place.

The code can still be changed to use dvb-pll afterwards without
unnecessary code duplication.
