Hi Ezequiel Garcia,
Thanks for your advice.
1: An upstream driver using the feature would be important, but it would
be nice to also have: an open-source userspace application,
>>> Ro request is one feature based on media request. In userspace,
application can use it the same as with request. Ro request and request
are separated in kernel space with different ctrl handler.
2:and a proper explanation in the stateless decoder interface
>>> Whether add the explanation in cover-letter is enough ? In fact,
these patches just add one new function v4l2_check_ro_ext_ctrls(), other
changes separate Ro request and request.
