The init-tab part of tda10023.c seems to indicate which posisions are
which registers in the chip. There are in particular two that are called
DELTAF_MSB and DELTAF_LSB, which is currently set to 0xFFF0. I guess
this would be a key thing to change, but what needs to be changed in the
tuner driver? I've also noticed that when the tda10046 is used with
tda827x it changes some other parameters in the demod (agc threshold,
gain and polarities). Do we need to change these in tda10023 also? Or
could we change tda827x to output what the tda10023 needs?
