The loop is not executed if num_ports is zero, so I don't see a problem
with that.

True; this can be seen as an omission but quite a few drivers have no need
for this either. It could be added later on --- I think it'd make perfect
sense.

The same pattern is actually present in
v4l2_async_register_subdev_sensor_common(). It's used in unregistration
that can only happen after the registration, i.e. this function, has
completed.

I was actually thinking of changing this later on a bit. I came to think of
this after picking up the patchset to my tree... oh well.

This function is meant for cases where you have multiple ports. That's not
working very nicely at the moment, and even with my patches, you can't pass
default configuration to e.g. v4l2_async_notifier_parse_fwnode_endpoints().
So there's definitely work to do. I'd like to move the details of parsing
out of drivers; every driver is doing almost the same but just in a little
bit different way.

The arguments should to be put into a struct. That way we get rid of a very
long series of hard-to-read function arguments, as well as we don't need to
change every caller when the function gets something new and interesting to
do.

Right now the entire patchset is so big (40 patches) that I'd prefer to get
it in unless serious issues are found, and proceed the development on top.
