Hi Hans, no problem. I repro'd and fixed it. Will include the fix in v5.

Tested fix to make sure of no crash with unbind/bind during sleep and
also during streaming.

during sleep, after specified time it shows below info but no crash.

Test VIDIOC_QUERYCAP:
                VIDIOC_QUERYCAP returned -1 (No such device)
VIDIOC_QUERYCAP: No such device

Thanks
