If I force EDID on the sender, it also works without setting EDID on the

# Make the detected dv timings current on TC358743
media-ctl --set-dv '"tc358743 1-000f":0'

# Set capture format at CSI output
media-ctl --set-v4l2 '"IPU0 CSI0":1[fmt:UYVY2X8/960x540]'

I'd like to handle this format propagation in libv4l2.

The capture driver currently does not collect its subdevices' controls
to present them on the main video device. Also this would only work for
controls that appear only once in the configured pipeline.

I once hacked v4l2-ctl to allow it to directly set subdev controls on
the /dev/v4l2-subdev nodes: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/6097201/
but the correct solution seems to be to have a subdevice specific
QUERYCAP alternative.

I'll do that, thanks in advance for testing.
