Hi Steve,

Thanks for the update.

All platform drivers have been converted to use
v4l2_async_notifier_add_subdev(), in place of adding
asd's to the notifier subdevs array. So the subdevs
array can now be removed from struct v4l2_async_notifier,
and remove the backward compatibility support for that
array in v4l2-async.c.

This set removes the subdevs and num_subdevs fieldsfrom the notifier (as
discussed previously) but it doesn't include the corresponding
driver changes. Is there a patch missing from the set?
Hi Sakari, yes somehow patch 15/17 (the large patch to all drivers)
got dropped by the ML, maybe because the cc-list was too big?

I will resend with only linux-media and cc: you.
For the Renesas CEU and Renesas R-Car VIN you can add my:

Thanks for testing!

I would have a very small comment on the renesas-ceu.c patch. I'm copying
the hunk here below as the patch didn't reach the mailing list

^^^ The 'remote' device node is only put in
the error path

If v4l2_async_notifier_add_subdev() succeeds, then the reference
is kept on the remote node until the asd is freed in
v4l2_async_notifier_cleanup(). Otherwise if
v4l2_async_notifier_add_subdev() fails, the asd is not
added to the notifier asd_list so the caller is responsible
for putting the remote node. So the only case where
the remote needs to be put is in the line you marked above.
Otherwise in the other error-out paths, the remote nodes
for all asd's that have been added will be put below in the
error_cleanup path.
