Ideally, what's provided by the demod and not the tuner max/min. The
tuners max/min should be checked by the demod on setting params.

The upper/lower limits in the demodulator drivers, came from the
concept of a frontend as a whole. Independant bounds do not make sense
(except internally -- It is the demod driver that which sets
parameters for the tuner. The external world doesn't need to know
what's the limit of the tuner, but only of the frontend as a whole).

Ideally, the demodulator should just demodulate only. There are some
cases, there are some cases which are not.
