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

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

     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 structure.

             struct radio_info {
                     int     mute;
                     int     volume;
                     int     stereo;
                     int     rfreq;  /* reference frequency */

             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 support this feature).

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

             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 the following values:

                     The device can determine if it is tuned to a stereo sig-
                     The device can determine if it is tuned or not.
                     The device is capable of forcibly setting its output to
                     The device can do hardware search.
                     The device has an internal hardware automatic frequency
                     The device allows changing the reference frequency of a
                     received signal.
                     The device allows changing the station lock sensitivity
                     used during search operation.
                     Some cards have several different incarnations. This al-
                     lows the variant of the card to be determined. Currently
                     not used.

             The info field is read-only and describes the current state of
             the card - tuned/not tuned, stereo signal/mono signal.

     LM700x is a frequency synthesizer IC. The LM700x is programmed through a
     24-bit write-only shift register. The first 14 bits are frequency data.
     The next 2 bits are LSI test bits, and should always be zero. The next 4
     bits are band data and time base data. They can be programmed to force a
     given reference frequency, or they can be set to zero and the next 3 bits
     can be used to set the reference frequency. The final bit selects the di-
     vider selection, which is 1 for FM and 0 for AM. The LM700x chips are
     used in az(4) and rt(4) cards.

     The TEA5757; TEA5759 is a 44-pin integrated AM/FM stereo radio circuit.
     The radio part is based on the TEA5712. The TEA5757 is used in FM-
     standards in which the local oscillator frequency is above the radio fre-
     quency (e.g. European and American standards). The TEA5759 is the version
     in which the oscillator frequency is below the radio frequency (e.g.
     Japanese standards). To conform with the Japanese standards, it is neces-
     sary to set the flags' least significant bit to 1. The TEA5757; TEA5759
     has a 25-bit read-write shift register. The TEA5757 chips are used in
     gtp(4), rtii(4), sf2r(4) and fms(4) cards.

     The TC9216P, TC9217P and TC9217F are high speed PLL-LSI with built-in 2
     modulus prescaler. Each function is controlled through 3 serial bus lines
     (DATA, CLOCK and PERIOD) by the data setting to a pair of 24-bit regis-
     ters, total of 48 bits. Address 8 bits and data 24 bits, total of 32
     bits, are transferred in serial at the same time. The TC921x chips are
     used in sfr(4) cards.
