	Well, I think we agreed on the fact 1 chip = 1 file...
And well, the frontends/ directory seems to me a good candidate to
receive files implementing drivers of chips that are part of .... 
a frontend (tuners, demod, sec, ...)

	I don't really see what the 'fe_' prefix would change here ??
If the file is in the frontends/ directory, then it is a part of a
frontend... And if it is in another directory, it shall be moved in
frontends/ ...
	Maybe I missed something ? If yes could you remember me why we'd
need this prefix ?

	Maybe lg-h06xf.h ??? <brand>-<model>.h

alps-bsru6.h, alps-bsbe1.h ? This would allow to find more easily the
datasheet of the part ?????
