But these checks still allow calling the pad operations on sub-devices that
have no pads. That should not be allowed. Pads are a Media controller
concept, they do not exist outside it; therefore checking for pads only if
the subdev is a part of the media device would be entirely correct.

It should probably accompany a check that requires the pad number is zero
if the subdev doesn't have a graph object, even if the pad field isn't
supposedly used for any purpose. Would that address your concern?

Kind regards,
