Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+Hardware supported by the linuxtv.org DVB drivers
+=================================================
+
+ Generally, the DVB hardware manufacturers frequently change the
+ frontends (i.e. tuner / demodulator units) used, usually without
+ changing the product name, revision number or specs. Some cards
+ are also available in versions with different frontends for
+ DVB-S/DVB-C/DVB-T. Thus the frontend drivers are listed seperately.
+
+ Note 1: There is no guarantee that every frontend driver works
+ out of the box with every card, because of different wiring.
+
+ Note 2: The demodulator chips can be used with a variety of
+ tuner/PLL chips, and not all combinations are supported. Often
+ the demodulator and tuner/PLL chip are inside a metal box for
+ shielding, and the whole metal box has its own part number.
+
