This is similarly buggy.

struct v4l2_device {
struct device *dev;
#if defined(CONFIG_MEDIA_CONTROLLER)
struct media_device *mdev;
#endif
struct list_head subdevs;
spinlock_t lock;
char name[V4L2_DEVICE_NAME_SIZE];
void (*notify)(struct v4l2_subdev *sd,
unsigned int notification, void *arg);
struct v4l2_ctrl_handler *ctrl_handler;
struct v4l2_prio_state prio;
struct kref ref;
void (*release)(struct v4l2_device *v4l2_dev);
};

Notice the kref and release function. This is the only way the
memory backing "struct v4l2_device" may be released. If you wish to
embed this structure into another structure, then the lifetime of
that other structure is determined by this one. IOW, when this
release function is called, only then may you kfree() the memory
backing struct imx_media_dev.

And... do you need all these struct device pointers?

imxmd->dev = dev;
imxmd->md.dev = dev;

As media_device already contains a pointer, can't you re-use that?
