It's not the 'create links between the entities' bit that's the problem, it is what follows:

+ ret = tegra_channel_setup_ctrl_handler(chan);
+ if (ret < 0) {
+ dev_err(vi->dev,
+ "failed to setup channel controls: %d\n", ret);
+ goto unregister_video;
+ }
+
+ vi_fmts_bitmap_init(chan);
+ subdev = tegra_channel_get_remote_subdev(chan, false);
+ v4l2_set_subdev_hostdata(subdev, chan);

That should be done before the video_register_device call.

Because otherwise the /dev/videoX doesn't have the full set of controls, and
I am also not certain which ioctls might use the subdev hostdata.

The core problem is really that video_register_device should have been split
into an init function and a register function, so it is possible to set
everything up before registering the video device. Oh well...

Hans
