Hi Stefan,

Thankk you for the patch.

Please don't, that will get confusing very quickly. Flag names such as 
DRM_BUS_FLAG_PIXDATA_NEGEDGE don't mention sampling or driving. There's only a 
small comment next to their definition, which will easily be overlooked. I'd 
rather update the definition to cover both sampling and driving, and document 
the input_bus_flags field to explain that all flags refer to sampling.
