Hi Mike and Hartmut,

this time, the patch does not change tda827x.c at all. I fiddled with
the PHY2 value in tda1004x.c and found it to be related to the IF(there
seems to be some factor between the IF and PHY2 introduced somewhere
else). This leaves some differences in tda1004x.c. I don't know what to
do with these, so i would be glad to get any hints.
