But that's no reason not to handle it here if the hardware permits, right ?

The API documentation is pretty confusing about this.

In pixfmt-v4l2.rst, the field in the v4l2_pix_format structure is documented
as

- Size in bytes of the buffer to hold a complete image, set by the
driver. Usually this is ``bytesperline`` times ``height``. When
the image consists of variable length compressed data this is the
maximum number of bytes required to hold an image.

Then in pixfmt-v4l2-mplane.rst, the field in the v4l2_plane_pix_format
structure is documented as

- Maximum size in bytes required for image data in this plane.

Finally, in vidioc-create-bufs.rst, we have

The buffers created by this ioctl will have as minimum size the size
defined by the ``format.pix.sizeimage`` field (or the corresponding
fields for other format types). Usually if the ``format.pix.sizeimage``
field is less than the minimum required for the given format, then an
error will be returned since drivers will typically not allow this. If
it is larger, then the value will be used as-is. In other words, the
driver may reject the requested size, but if it is accepted the driver
will use it unchanged.

The VIDIOC_CREATE_BUFS documentation contradicts the v4l2_pix_format
documentation, as the multiplane case doesn't state anything about who sets
the sizeimage field. We should clarify the documentation.

Possibly a bit out of scope, but now that the standard debugging interface
seems to be debugfs, wouldn't it make sense to implement log status through
there instead of as an ioctl ?
