Hi Philipp,

Yes it's a hack, but it has always been a hack (hardcoded values). And the
reason is simple, nobody AFAIK (including me) understands how to program
these CSI_CCIR_CODE registers, the description in the reference manual is
complete gibberish.

The reason we made this change is that, in discussions with Analog Devices,
they recommended setting NEWAVMODE, which changes the positions of
the AV codes sent by the ADV7180 on the bt.656 bus. It took Suresh at least
a full day of reverse engineering (Suresh correct me if I am wrong) to hit
on the correct values in these registers to regain stable video after
the ADV7180 to NEWAVMODE.
