I like the idea, it definitely saves some code.

The conversion also looks correct.

It would be nice for casual readers to have a little comment here, that
explains (briefly) what this macro does, and what the arguments mean,
and their types.

Why cmd rather than __cmd? This seems inconsistent.

The wlen local variable can be avoided by a bit of suffling:

#define CMD_SETUP(cmd, __args, __rlen) do { \
cmd.rlen = __rlen; \
cmd.wlen = sizeof(__args) - 1; \
memcpy(cmd.args, __args, cmd.wlen); \
} while (0)

Makes sense.

Then include/media/dvb_frontend.h would contain information about the
private structs of a few (two) drivers. This doesn't seem like a good
idea to me.
