Thanks for the patch. The change is correct, but I think the commit
message doesn't really explain the real reason for it. Perhaps something

"The driver can be instantiated multiple times, e.g. for a decoder and
an encoder. Moreover, other drivers could coexist on the same system.
This makes the static video node number assignment pointless, so switch
to automatic assignment instead."


Best regards,
