I hate it that the spec changes the sequence meaning for FIELD_ALTERNATE,
I always thought that that made drivers unnecessarily complicated. Unfortunately,
this is something we inherited.

Currently the spec says for sequence:

"Set by the driver, counting the frames (not fields!) in sequence. This field is set
for both input and output devices."

The only thing missing here is that it should say that for compressed formats this
counts the buffers, since one buffer with compressed data may not have a one-to-one
mapping with frames.

This description for 'sequence' was never updated when compressed data formats were
added, so it is a bit out of date.

Why wasn't the existing code in this patch sane? Sure, we can change the spec, but
then 1) all existing drivers need to be updated as well, and 2) v4l2-compliance needs
to be changed to test specifically for this class of drivers and ensure that for those
the sequence field is set to 0. Not to mention introducing an exception in the uAPI
where the sequence field suddenly isn't used anymore.

Frankly, I would prefer that the whole sequence handling is moved to videobuf2-v4l2.c.
It really doesn't belong in drivers, with the exception of incrementing the sequence
counter in case of dropped frames.

I think I suggested it when vb2 was being designed, but at the time the preference
was to keep it in the driver. Long time ago, though.

And another reason why I want to keep it: I find it actually useful to see a running
counter: it helps keeping track of how many buffers you've processed since you started
streaming.

Finally, the removal of the sequence counter simply does not belong in this patch.
