Just want to close on this part of feedback. Hope above explanation is
clear regarding triggering/issuing at max 2 frame capture to VI HW and
also regarding capture threads where they use wait_event_interruptible
to prevent blocking waiting for buffers to be available for captures.

So no changes related to this part are needed in v7.
