Okay, so this programs the VI to increment the given syncpoint upon
frame start? What is that VI_CSI_PP_FRAME_START(chan->portno) exactly?

And now we start capturing in single-shot mode.

But this I don't understand. You wake up the kthread...

... and then wait for the syncpoint to reach the given threshold? Isn't
that the wrong way around? Don't we need to wait for the syncpoint
increment *before* we wake up the kthread that will return the buffer
to userspace?

Actually... there's another syncpoint wait here, so I guess this will
stall until VI has actually completed writing the captured frame to
memory.

So it's really only at this point that we return the buffer to
userspace, which should be after the hardware is done writing to the
buffer, so this should be fine.

That said, I'm wondering if host1x_syncpt_wait() is a good interface
for this use-case. We don't really have anything else right now, but
I think we may be able to add something to have a function called in
case the syncpoint reaches a threshold. Having to spawn two separate
threads with wait queues seems a bit overkill for this.

It's fine to leave this as it is for now, but maybe something to
consider as improvement in the future.

What's with the error here? I think we should either handle it in some
way, or just avoid even returning an error if we're not going to deal
with it anyway.
