Updated tree: http://jusst.de/hg/mantis/

The major improvements are for the VP-1034

* Demodulator status check made reliable
* Code simplification for Viterbi Sync check, makes acquisition more reliable
* Implement a BER monitor measured for a base of 2 ^ 20
* Implement a Signal strength monitor provides a relative scale in terms of percentage (SNR is in dBmV)
* Implement a "simple" UCB monitor, no real UCB monitor (just a kid's toy thing to watch like the other frontends)

Also fixed a bug on BE machines, thanks to David Woodhouse
