It's basically telling the V4L2 fwnode parser to parse that bus only, and
not guess what the caller wanted.

This is what drivers should actually be doing. It also allows setting the
defaults that many drivers declare in their DT bindings but very few
actually implement.

I'd expect it to be safer this way, as there's no guessing involved.
