Subject[PATCH v4 0/5] Collapse vimc into single monolithic driver
vimc uses Component API to split the driver into functional components.
The real hardware resembles a monolith structure than component and
component structure added a level of complexity making it hard to
maintain without adding any real benefit.

The sensor is one vimc component that would makes sense to be a separate
module to closely align with the real hardware. It would be easier to
collapse vimc into single monolithic driver first and then split the
sensor off as a separate module.

This patch series removes the component API and makes minimal changes to
the code base preserving the functional division of the code structure.
Preserving the functional structure allows us to split the sensor off
as a separate module in the future.

The following configure and stream test works on all devices.

media-ctl -d platform:vimc -V '"Sensor A":0[fmt:SBGGR8_1X8/640x480]'
media-ctl -d platform:vimc -V '"Debayer A":0[fmt:SBGGR8_1X8/640x480]'
media-ctl -d platform:vimc -V '"Sensor B":0[fmt:SBGGR8_1X8/640x480]'
media-ctl -d platform:vimc -V '"Debayer B":0[fmt:SBGGR8_1X8/640x480]'

v4l2-ctl -z platform:vimc -d "RGB/YUV Capture" -v width=1920,height=1440
v4l2-ctl -z platform:vimc -d "Raw Capture 0" -v pixelformat=BA81
v4l2-ctl -z platform:vimc -d "Raw Capture 1" -v pixelformat=BA81

v4l2-ctl --stream-mmap --stream-count=100 -d /dev/video1
v4l2-ctl --stream-mmap --stream-count=100 -d /dev/video2
v4l2-ctl --stream-mmap --stream-count=100 -d /dev/video3

The second patch in the series fixes a general protection fault found
when rmmod is done while stream is active.

- rmmod while streaming returns vimc is in use
- rmmod without active stream works correctly

Changed since v3: (5 patches)
Patch 1:
- Main change is adding an array of struct vimc_ent_device(s) to save
vimc_ent_device(s), subdevs create in their "add" hooks. These
get used to create links and removing the subdevs. vimc-core allocates
this array which sized to number of entries in the topology defined in
the vimc_pipeline_config structure.
- Remove links when register fails before registering the media device.
In this case, entity links need to be removed from error paths.
Patch 2: no change.
New patch 3:
- Cleaning up duplicated IS_SRC and IS_SINK defines and moving them to
common header.
New patch 4:
- Documentation module parameter usage updates.
New patch 5:
- Lastly adding myself as a reviewers to MAINTAINERS file for vimc

Changes since v2:
- Rebase to media master on top of vimc reverts
- Rename "vent" variable to "vcfg" to reflect config and standout
from "ved"
- Error handling when adding subdevs fails to remove already added
subdevs, do other clean-up and bail out.

Changes since v1:
Patch 1 & 2: (patch 1 in this series)
- Collapsed the two patches into one
- Added common defines (vimc_device and vimc_ent_config) to vimc-common.h
based on our discussion.
- Addressed review comments from Helen and Laurent
- Use vimc-common.h instead of creating a new file.
- Other minor comments from Helen on int vs. unsigned int and
not needing to initialize ret in vimc_add_subdevs()
Patch 3 (patch 2 in this series):
- The second patch is the fix for gpf. Updated the patch after looking
at the test results from Andre and Helen. This problem is in a common
code and impacts all subdevs. The fix addresses the core problem and
fixes it. Fix removes pads release from v4l2_device_unregister_subdev()
and pads are now released from the sd release handler with all other

- Update documentation with the correct topology.
- There is one outstanding gpf remaining in the unbind path. I will
fix that in a separate patch. This is an existing problem and will
be easier to fix on top of this patch series.

compared to media master)
