Hi Peter,

Thanks for cc'ing me.

bus-type won't tell anything in this case, you could simply drop it. If
your hardware only supports parallel or Bt.656 bus then the code parsing
the properties can (and should) know the bus type as well.

Looking at your implementation, bus-type is not being used. This supports
the suggestion.

The V4L2 implementation is about to change as well and there's a bit of
discussion ongoing related to the bus-type property:
