Sometimes elegance also matters. Other than that the convention that we
have is (from dvb_frontend.h)

      151 	void* demodulator_priv;
      152 	void* tuner_priv;
      153 	void* frontend_priv;
      154 	void* sec_priv;

for private resources. Since the hybrid operation is private to the
device, just followed the same convention, which additionally brings in
the advantage of *not* having private resources into the header for dvb
