See a comment/proposal below about an issue I encountered when using
multi-planar formats.

I am getting data corruption on qb->v4l2_buf.m.planes from this when
using planar buffers, only after exiting the ioctl handler (i.e. when
accessing this buffer later from the queue).

I initially thought this was because the planes pointer was copied as-is
from userspace, but Maxime Ripard suggested that this would have
automatically triggered a visible fault in the kernel.

Thus, my best guess is that the data is properly copied from userspace
but freed when leaving the ioctl handler, which doesn't work our with
the request API.

A dirty fix that I came up with consists in re-allocating the planes
buffer here and copying its contents from "b", so that it can live
beyond the ioctl call.

I am not too sure whether this should be fixed here or in the part of
the v4l2 common code that frees this data. What do you think?

Cheers!
