[media] v4l: Add multi-planar API definitions to the V4L2 API
Multi-planar API is as a backwards-compatible extension of the V4L2 API, which allows video buffers to consist of one or more planes. Planes are separate memory buffers; each has its own mapping, backed by usually separate physical memory buffers. Many different uses for the multi-planar API are possible, examples include: - embedded devices requiring video components to be placed in physically separate buffers, e.g. for Samsung S3C/S5P SoC series' video codec, Y and interleaved Cb/Cr components reside in buffers in different memory banks; - applications may receive (or choose to store) video data of one video buffer in separate memory buffers; such data would have to be temporarily copied together into one buffer before passing it to a V4L2 device; - applications or drivers may want to pass metadata related to a buffer and it may not be possible to place it in the same buffer, together with video data.
