Adds tables of all register values for routing various signals to various terminals on National Instruments hardware. This information is directly compared to and taken from register-level programming documentation and/or register-level programming examples as provided by National Instruments.
Furthermore, this information was mostly compared (favorably) to the register values already used in the comedi drivers for NI hardware. Adds tables of valid routes for many devices. This information is not consistent from device to device, nor entirely consistent within device families. One additional major challenge is that this information does not seem to be obtainable in any programmatic fashion, neither through the proprietary NIDAQmx(-base) c-libraries, nor with register level programming, _nor_ through any documentation. In fact, the only consistent source of this information is through the proprietary NI-MAX software, which currently only runs on Windows platforms. A further challenge is that this information cannot be exported from NI-MAX, except by screenshot. As described in ni_routing/README and as provided by this commit, the device route information is primarily stored in a spreadsheet so-as to enhance the ability to compare to screenshots obtained of NI-MAX. This commit provides the ability to parse the spreadsheets and generate code following kernel conventions. Signed-off-by: Spencer E.
