Thanks Hans.

Tried without notifier unbind to remove media links and I still see
crash due to below diff reason now.

With userspace app holding video device node with active streaming in
progress when I do driver unbind, v4l2_device release callback
tegra_v4l2_dev_release() happens prior to vb2_fops_release() ->

All channels resources and channel memory is freed during v4l2_device
release callback.

Letting vb2_queue_release() to happen thru vb2_fops_release() causes
crash as stop streaming tries to retrieve subdev thru channel media pads
and channel memory is freed by that time.

So, doing vb2_queue_release() during driver unbind -> tegra_vi_exit() ->
tegra_vi_graph_cleanup(), stops subdev stream properly and then on
v4l2_device release channel memory gets freed and this works which is
the existing implementation in the patch.

I remember adding vb2_queue_release() during graph cleanup for TPG as
well for the same reason to allow driver unbind while holding video
device from user space so media pad can be accessible to stop stream
before channel cleanup.
