I don't understand this condition, way is it good for?

I think the function should be generic and not assume names of entities
or specific topology.

I also don't understand this condition

It is not clear what this function does, it looks like it adds to 'ved_pipeline'
all entities that are connected to the video node, in addition to the entities
that where there from previous calls, so some entities appear several times.

I think there is no need to use the graph walk here but to access the source entity
in each iteration, the way done in vimc_streamer_stream_start
also.
I think the code should iterate here until it reaches an entity that is already streaming,
this means that the entity is already in the `ved_pipeline`, also you should make sure
that the sensor is the first entity that process a frame, therefore the sensor should be
at the end/start of the list of entities. Generally each entity should appear exactly once
in the 'ved_pipeline' array and the entities should be ordered such that when calling 'process_frame'
on one entity should be after calling 'process_frame' on its source entity.
maybe it is easyer to implement if 'ved_pipeline' is a linked list.

Thanks,
Dafna
