DESCRIPTION
     The radio driver provides support for various FM radio cards.  It provides an uniform pro-
     gramming interface layer above different underlying radio hardware drivers.

     For radio tuner controlling there is a single device file available: /dev/radio.

     The following ioctl(2) commands are supported:

     RIOCSSRCH (int)
	     This command assumes that a signal search is required and gives direction of search
	     to the driver - 0 to search down and any non-zero value to search up.
     RIOCGINFO (struct radio_info)
     RIOCSINFO (struct radio_info)
	     Get or set the current hardware device information into the struct radio_info struc-
	     ture.

	     struct radio_info {
		     int     mute;
		     int     volume;
		     int     stereo;
		     int     rfreq;  /* reference frequency */
		     int     lock;   /* locking field strength */
		     uint32_t	     freq;   /* in kHz */
		     uint32_t	     caps;   /* card capabilities */
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_DETECT_STEREO	     (1<<0)
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_DETECT_SIGNAL	     (1<<1)
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_SET_MONO	     (1<<2)
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_HW_SEARCH	     (1<<3)
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_HW_AFC		     (1<<4)
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_REFERENCE_FREQ	     (1<<5)
	     #define RADIO_CAPS_LOCK_SENSITIVITY     (1<<6)
	     #define RADIO_CARD_TYPE		     (0xFF<<16)
		     uint32_t	     info;
	     #define RADIO_INFO_STEREO		     (1<<0)
	     #define RADIO_INFO_SIGNAL		     (1<<1)
	     };

	     The mute field is a boolean.

	     The volume field holds the card volume information and can be at most 255.

	     The stereo field is a boolean.

	     The rfreq holds information about the card reference frequency (not all cards sup-
	     port this feature).

	     The lock field holds information about the card locking field strength during an
	     automatic search for cards that support this feature.

	     The freq field is the frequency in kHz the card is tuned to.

	     The caps field is read-only and describes the card capabilities.  The capabilities
	     can have following values:
	     RADIO_CAPS_DETECT_STEREO
		     The device can determine is it tuned to a stereo signal.
	     RADIO_CAPS_DETECT_SIGNAL
		     The device can determine is it tuned or not.
	     RADIO_CAPS_SET_MONO
		     The device capable to forcible set its output to mono.
	     RADIO_CAPS_HW_SEARCH
		     The device can do hardware search.
	     RADIO_CAPS_HW_AFC
		     The device has an internal hardware automatic frequency control.
	     RADIO_CAPS_REFERENCE_FREQ
		     The device allow to change the reference frequency of a received signal.
	     RADIO_CAPS_LOCK_SENSITIVITY
		     The device allow to change the station lock sensitivity used during search
		     operation.
	     RADIO_CARD_TYPE
		     Some cards have several different incarnations.  This allow to determine the
		     variant of the card.  Currently not used.

	     The info field is read-only and describes the current state of the card - tuned/not
	     tuned, stereo signal/mono signal.
	     RADIO_INFO_STEREO
		     Informs whether the device receives a stereo or mono signal.
	     RADIO_INFO_SIGNAL
		     Informs whether the device receives a valid signal or noise.
