Even if the transmitter is expected to keep the lanes in this stop state
all the time while the subdevice is powered but not streaming, I still
have to wait for stop state detection before enabling the transmitter,
and only then enable the reciever.
I'll remove the prepare_streaming callback in the next version and
instead let the subdevices propagate s_stream upstream instead in the
next version.
