Certainly. But it is the reason why it's hard to find example code in
existing drivers.

This should contain the same text as in pixfmt-v4l2.rst.

The pixfmt-v4l2-mplane.rst is the one that's incomplete. I noticed the same
thing when I looked at it.

Why? The ioctl has been there for many many years and it works very well (Cisco
uses this on a daily basis). I see no reason to do a lot of work for no good
purpose. It's probably less useful for sensors but for video receivers (HDMI or
analog) I couldn't do without. With HDMI/analog video receivers you never
know what sort of video you receive, so being able to log the current status
is great. We use it in regression tests and error reporting all the time.

Sure, today we'd design this using debugfs, but I don't think it existed when
LOG_STATUS was created. In any case, I see no reason to change this. In fact,
that would break our tests.

Hans
