This patch doesn't prevent customizing the IF. It will just avoid the
need of setting the IF on both xc5000 and drx-k. Basically, (some) DRX-K
based boards use different IF's depending on the bandwidth and delivery
system type. Instead of adding a complex logic that would allow such
kind of IF adjustments on both, drx-k will simply inquire the tuner about
what IF is currently used.
