s5h1411: Calculate signal strength shown as percentage from SNR up to 35dBatscdemod
As done first in lgdt330x.c, calculate signal strength from SNR up to 35dB Even though the SNR can go higher than 35dB, there is some comfort factor in having a range of strong signals that can show at 100% Signed-off-by: Michael Krufky <mkrufky@kernellabs.com> Signed-off-by: Devin Heitmueller <dheitmueller@kernellabs.com> Signed-off-by: Steven Toth <stoth@kernellabs.com>
