Peaberry and Linrad

To get linrad working with the Peaberry, it requires a similar fix as usbsoftrock. It would be better to add an extra option, but this quick and dirty trick makes it work:

In the linrad source code, locate the file "si570.c" and change the define VENDOR_NAME_OBDEV to AE9RB, and PRODUCT_NAME to "Peaberry SDR"

Linrad seems very powerful, but the user interface is quite... "peculiar".

Another thing: the I and Q channels need to be reversed. I did not find how to change it from within the software, so eventually I went directly to the config file "par_si570_DG8SAQ", and changed Passband direction from 1 to -1.
Linrad seems to be using 16 bit audio, I haven't figured out how to switch to 24 bit yet.
