We already went thru driver structure changes during earlier versions
and internal feedbacks.

Not sure of restructuring again now. Also reg wastage of space, tegra
specific implementation is not huge also for T186 and later we have
RTCPU firmware that driver communicates with and it light weight. Based
on internal discussion, no upstream support for prior Tegra210.

So, probably what we have regarding structure is ok except video formats
I will move to Tegra210 and change defines to use Tegra210 prefix.
