    get_if_frequency will work, but for *optimal* settings for the
    hardware that my company manufactures, this is it. The hardcoded IF
    is the correct setting for *this* hardware. There are more factors
    than just a tuner and demodulator, here. I know the board layout and
    the crystal configurations, and we did extensive testing. Sure, you
    can use get_if_frequency and it will "work" ... but when I have
    information about how it will work *best* then you should merge my

    This is the fix. You can merge it or you will not merge it. I did my
    part, Mauro. My customers need this fix and I will not argue.

    ALSO, for -stable, there is no get_if_frequency. I cannot have the
    patch merged into stable unless you merge it into mainline. There is
    no time for opinion - only facts. Please merge.
