[media] dvb-frontend.h: document struct dvb_frontend_ops
This is one of the most important functions of the DVB frontend, containing the logic needed to set the parameters at the demux and to send commands via SEC. Document it. Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <mchehab@osg.samsung.com> Acked-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
