i didn't say you should not specify the delivery type when
querying, just not set it.

the cx24116 driver as it stands may return one of two static
structures when get_info is called.

it makes no point to me to query for this detail prior to
every set_params, hence, setting internal state on get_info
is asking for problems, however, setting the delivery path
on set_params does makes sense.

yes, but one question, why doesn't the multiproto driver aggregate
demods? I can see it handling multiple protocol on one physical device,
but this doesn't extend to cards that contain multiple physical demods
yet with only the one bus path, such as the hvr4000?
