Does this actually fail? With what driver and on what hardware?

I ask because I am very reluctant to make any changes to videobuf. It is
slowly being replaced by the vastly superior videobuf2 framework. Existing
drivers in the kernel still using the old videobuf seem to work just fine
(or at least as fine as videobuf allows you to be).
