This isn't the way to do this.

You should only create the out fence file descriptor when userspace dequeues
(i.e. calls VIDIOC_DQEVENT) the BUF_QUEUED event. That's when you give it to
userspace and at that moment closing the fd is the responsibility of userspace.
There is no point creating it earlier anyway since userspace can't get to it
until it dequeues the event.

It does mean some more work in the V4L2 core since you need to hook into the
DQEVENT code in order to do this.
