I may answer on behalf of Olivier (didn't his address bounce?).

I don't remember the details, this patch must date from 2011 or
before, but at that time we generated the linux-driver from our/their
internal sources.

Updates in this area were achieved by a lot of thinking + a mix of trial
and error (after hours/days/weeks of RF hardware validation).

This logic above has 3 possibilities:

- we use the analog-output, or
- we are using the digital one, then there is whether we are being in
a SoC or not (SIP or sinlge chip).

At some point in time all values have been different. In the end, they
aren't anymore, but in case someone wants to try a different value,
there are placeholders in the code to easily inject these values.

Now the device is stable, maybe even obsolete. We could remove all the
branches resulting in the same value for lo6.
