[media] V4L: vb2: add support for buffers of different sizes on a single queue
The two recently added ioctl()s VIDIOC_CREATE_BUFS and VIDIOC_PREPARE_BUF allow user-space applications to allocate video buffers of different sizes and hand them over to the driver for fast switching between different frame formats. This patch adds support for buffers of different sizes on the same buffer-queue to vb2.
