Just a high-level comment before you post the next version of this series:

Please compile the latest version of v4l2-compliance (part of
git://linuxtv.org/v4l-utils.git) and run it against your driver:

v4l2-compliance -m /dev/mediaX

Whenever you post a new version of this series, please do a 'git pull' of
the v4l-utils repo, recompile and retest with v4l2-compliance and post the
test results in the cover letter.

Obviously, there should be no FAILs and probably no warnings.

I suspect that streaming (e.g. adding the -s10 option to v4l2-compliance)
probably won't work since v4l2-compliance doesn't know about the meta data
formats.
