I am not touching the API.  I am working on adding support for the tda8295+8275a
and tda8295+18271 to tda8290.c and tda827x.c .....  For now, I have the analog
parts working and ready, will push in a patch after Hartmut's review.

Manu's proposal runs deeper than Markus, and address the issue in a much more
thorough manner.  I like the direction that the discussion between you and Manu
are going.  We must all keep an open mind, and make the BEST decision.  This is
not a race, and it doesnt matter who came first.

I have no proposal on the table.  I just want to see the best solution made.

Manu's rfc has been outstanding for over a year now.  Multiproto is required for
dvb-s2 support, and Markus' proposal does not take multiproto into account.  I
am sure Manu will be able to get into better detail, here.
