Subject: [media] si2168: define symbol rate limits

commit f1ecc5d119530fce01094307e029ed7f2c9067d8 upstream.

w_scan complains about missing symbol rate limits:
This dvb driver is *buggy*: the symbol rate limits are undefined - please report to linuxtv.org

Chip supports 1 to 7.2 MSymbol/s on DVB-C.
