That's interesting, and possibly unrelated to the patch series that added
metadata capture support. Would you be able to revert that patch series and
see if the problem still occurs ? The four commits to be reverted are
And if you could bisect the issue it would be even better :-)
Could you also send me the output of lsusb -v for your camera (you can
restrict it to the camera with -d VID:PID), running as root if possible ?
