[linux-dvb] Suggestions for T750

Here I go replying to myself again.

I have had some success with loading the firmware.  I has a suspicion 
that I needed to twiddle the GPIO pins but could not get it to work.  
Studying the xc3028 driver showed me the way.  The GPIO needs to be 
first cleared and then set before continuing.

The xc3028 is very similar to the xc2028 and they could use a common 
driver.  I don't understand how the firmware file is stored for the 
xc3028 though.  I assume that multiple chunks are encoded into one file 

There is also another firmware chunk which is needed for FM radio 
support so I don't know how that would be added.

Anyway, I have loading firmware but still no TV.  I think I am close though.

i2c traces and firmware can be downloaded from here

I'll try and clean up my code and post a patch tomorrow.
