Subject[REGRESSION] Re: [PATCH v10 11/21] media: uvcvideo: Set unique vdev name based in type

Hi Ricard,

Thanks for your work. The only issue is that unfortunately this change cause an
important regression for users. All UVC cameras in all UIs seems to no longer
include any information about the camera. As an example, I have two cameras on
my system and Firefox, Chrome, Cheese, Zoom and MS Team all agree that my camera
are now:

Video Capture 4
Video Capture 5

Previously they would be shown as something like:

StreamCam
Integrated

We should probably revert this change quickly before it get deployed more
widely, I have notice the backport being sent for 5.4, 5.10 and 5.14. I'm using
5.15 shipped by Fedora team.

As a proper solution, maybe I could suggest to keep using dev->name, but trim it
enough to fit the " N" string to guaranty that you have enough space in this
limited 32 char string and use that instead ? This should fit the uniqueness
requirement without the sacrifice of the only possibly useful information we had
in that limited string.

regards,
Nicolas
