[linux-dvb] advanced LNB power features

Just got inspired by LNBP21 and LNBP22 features:

Are there any plans to support fancy LNB power features like:
- Current limit selection (e.g. switchable to 350mA or 450mA limit)
- Short circuit detection
- Short circuit handling (eg.: limit current to max, or do PWM like limitation)

There are only two function pointer in dvb_frontend_ops which handle LNB power. 
The new options would require at least one more. 
The most flexible way would be a generic "set_lnb_power_feature" function.

Don't know whether someone needs this but you'll never know:-)

Any comments are welcome,
