This is a safeguard against driver bugs: a buffer should not complete
unless it is part of the request being currently processed.

Indeed, but on the other hand I was not a big fan of going through the
whole list. :) So I welcome the extra throttling introduced by the
fence series.

That is correct.

Aren't requests supposed to be performed sequentially, even in the
camera case? Passing a buffer to the driver means that we allow it to
process it using its current settings ; if another request is
currently active, wouldn't that become an issue?

s/dequeued/completed. A request is marked as completed as soon as all
its buffers are marked as done, and can be polled before its buffers
are dequeued by user-space.

Do you suggest that we enforce a "one buffer per queue per request"
rule? I cannot thing of any case where this would be a hard limiting
factor (and it would certainly simplify the code), on the other hand
it may slow things down a bit in the case where we want to e.g. take
several shots in fast succession with the same parameters. But I have
no evidence that the extra lag would be noticeable.

My recollection is that we do not support that, on the other hand is
there a case where allowing it would break things? Especially if we
decide to limit each request to one buffer per queue.

This wouldn't be needed if I understood your intent properly about
limiting requests to one buffer per queue. If not, where would you
suggest to move this?
