The purpose of the struct binding image source's async subdev as well as
related information is to allow associating the two. This patch breaks
that. If your device can support a single sensor, it might not be a big
deal. The end result remains somewhat inconsistent as subdev specific
information is spread across struct stm32_dcmi and struct
In general you don't need to know the sensor as you can always find it
using media_entity_remote_pad(). This driver is a little different though
as it could presumably continue to work without MC. Was that the intent?
On a side note: struct dcmi_graph_entity does NOT have struct
v4l2_async_subdev as its first member. Please fix that and prepend the fix
to this set.
