This ioctl is for Digital TV devices only. This ioctl was also supported by the
V4L2 ivtv driver, but that has been replaced by the ivtv-specific
This ioctl call informs the video device which source shall be used for
the input data. The possible sources are demux or memory. If memory is
selected, the data is fed to the video device through the write command.

typedef enum {
VIDEO_SOURCE_DEMUX, /* Select the demux as the main source */

comes from the user through the write
