The media documentation says that the V4L2_COLORSPACE_SMPTE170M colorspace
should be used for SDTV and V4L2_COLORSPACE_REC709 for HDTV. But drivers
don't agree on the display resolution that should be used as a threshold.

Some drivers set V4L2_COLORSPACE_REC709 for 720p and higher while others
set V4L2_COLORSPACE_REC709 for anything higher than 576p. Newers drivers
use the latter and that also matches what user-space multimedia programs
do (i.e: GStreamer), so change the driver logic to be aligned with this.

Also, check for the resolution in G_FMT instead unconditionally setting
the V4L2_COLORSPACE_REC709 colorspace.

This is a mem2mem device, right? In the case of mem2mem devices the driver should never
set the colorspace, instead it just copies it from what the application provides (the
video output side) to the capture side.

After all, you are just scaling here so the input and output colorspaces are
exactly the same, and the scaler doesn't care what the colorspace is.

This device also does color conversion so I think it matters here, am I misunderstanding something?
Also, is that comment only for the try_fmt part as it looks like in g_fmt the driver should fill up the structure
with its values?

Thanks for you review.
