I was approaching it from the user space/kernel space divide.
The user space does not handle bitfields for controls, it uses integers.
The driver must therefore present the controls within the hardware as
integers to user space.
I thought he was having problems because the translation was not being
done in the driver, so user space was handling the value wrongly.
