My issue here is that might be the intent, but that's not what the driver
uses it for. All the infrastructure seems to be there to control the
low gain / high gain control but it's not actually hooked up.

The driver currently just applies that number as a multiplier without changing
the state of the chip to match.

Let's leave it there, but at somepoint would be good to dig out some hardware
and actually make this work as expected. I 'might' get to this at somepoint.
