Subject[RFC v5 01/11] [media] v4l: add V4L2_CAP_ORDERED to the uapi
Date
From: Gustavo Padovan <gustavo.padovan@collabora.com>

When using explicit synchronization userspace needs to know if
the queue can deliver everything back in the same order, so we added
a new capability that drivers can use to report that they are capable
of keeping ordering.

In videobuf2 core when using fences we also make sure to keep the ordering
of buffers, so if the driver guarantees it too the whole pipeline inside
V4L2 will be ordered and the V4L2_CAP_ORDERED should be used.
