Some drivers may support format changes during streaming (that's allowed
by the V4L2 API, I'm not sure if it's used anywhere though). While I'd
favour not duplicating the same logic in different (and differently
buggy) ways in drivers, I'm not sure how this could be implemented in a
sane way in the V4L2 core in its current state.
