The description (quoted above) specifies exactly that the control
applies only to the next queued buffer. It's a "button" control, so
when the application sets it (to 1), it triggers a call to driver's
s_ctrl callback and then resets to 0 automatically.

It was created later to solve this problem. For compatibility, we have
to keep supporting the control too.
