hackrf: introduce bias=0|1 and bias_tx=0|1 parameters

... to support antenna/phantom power via a new device argument "bias"
(to match Airspy's existing bias power syntax). 0=disable and 1=enable.
I also added a device argument to control bias power at transmit time. I
named this option differently - "bias_tx" - to avoid accidentally
enabling bias power in transmit mode when an LNA may be attached in an
input amplifier configuration.
