media: Revert "[media] v4l: async: make v4l2 coexist with devicetree nodes in a dt overlay"old/cs_42b884edd6fa
This reverts commit d2180e0cf77dc7a7049671d5d57dfa0a228f83c1. The commit was flawed in that if the device_node pointers are different, then in fact a different device is present and the device node could be different in ways other than full_name. As Frank Rowand explained: "When an overlay (1) is removed, all uses and references to the nodes and properties in that overlay are no longer valid. Any driver that uses any information from the overlay _must_ stop using any data from the overlay. Any driver that is bound to a new node in the overlay _must_ unbind. Any driver that became bound to a pre-existing node that was modified by the overlay (became bound after the overlay was applied) _must_ adjust itself to account for any changes to that node when the overlay is removed. One way to do this is to unbind when notified that the overlay is about to be removed, then to re-bind after the overlay is completely removed. If an overlay (2) is subsequently applied, a node with the same full_name as from overlay (1) may exist. There is no guarantee that overlay (1) and overlay (2) are the same overlay, even if that node has the same full_name in both cases." Also, there's not sufficient overlay support in mainline to actually remove and re-apply an overlay to hit this condition as overlays can only be applied from in kernel APIs.
