Of course if we move the stream to the sensor entity (which I still
think is a good idea), we'll need a way to easily get from capture
entity to the sensor entity. We could put a reference pointer directly
in the capture ? Or have each entity provide a poitner to it's previous
entity and walk backwards, which would also help on the other code path
that had to do lots of conversions from video or subdev entities or such...
