Yep.

So the graph_build_one is for the two first cases, and the
_build_video for the latter case?

If so, you should take a look at the last iteration of the
subnotifiers rework by Nikas Söderlund (v4l2-async: add subnotifier
registration for subdevices).

It allows subdevs to register notifiers, and you don't have to build
the graph from the video device, each device and subdev can only care
about what's next in the pipeline, but not really what's behind it.

That would mean in your case that you can only deal with your single
CSI pad, and whatever subdev driver will use it care about its own.

Yeah, I'm not really sure how we could deal with that, but I guess we
can do it later on.

I'm not sure what you meant here, but if you think that's appropriate,
please go ahead.

Usually it's either through some interference, or some poorly designed
controller. This is unlikely, but it's something you should take into
account.

Thanks!
