That is what I believe having read these documents several times, but
we need v4l2 people to confirm.

Note that setting the format on 'ipu1_csi0':0 should already be done by
the previous media-ctl command, so it should be possible to simplify
that to:

media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'ipu1_csi0_mux':2[fmt:UYVY2X8/1920x1080 at 1/60]"
media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'ipu1_csi0':0[compose:(0,0)/960x540]"
media-ctl --set-v4l2 "'ipu1_csi0':2[fmt:AYUV32/960x540 at 1/30]"

I have tripped over a bug in media-ctl when specifying both a crop and
compose rectangle - the --help output suggests that "," should be used
to separate them.  media-ctl rejects that, telling me the character at
the "," should be "]".  Replacing the "," with " " allows media-ctl to
accept it and set both rectangles, so it sounds like a parser bug - I've
not looked into this any further yet.
