No. I have some major reservations against the custom mem2mem framework
embedded in Steve's driver.
I think it is a misuse of the media entity links (which should describe
hardware connections) for something that should be done at the vb2 level
(letting one device's capture EOF interrupt trigger the next device's
m2m device_run without going through userspace).
Steve and I disagree on that point, so we'd appreciate if we could get
some more eyes on the above issue.

regards
Philipp
