    I didn't comment the libdvbapi/mti driver.
    I'm quite confident that non I2C protocols can be handled by a callback
    function. In the end it's either a usb control command or pci mmio writes
    in the current usual cases and such calls could be handled behind a
    callback function which is implemented in the driver.
