 Hi Stefan.

Thanks for forwarding as the linux-rpi-kernel list hasn't sent it to me as yet.

It's writing to the wrong structure member.
The function is used on the V4L2 control V4L2_CID_COLORFX_CBCR, which
is defined as:
V4L2_CID_COLORFX_CBCR (integer)
Determines the Cb and Cr coefficients for V4L2_COLORFX_SET_CBCR color
effect. Bits [7:0] of the supplied 32 bit value are interpreted as Cr
component, bits [15:8] as Cb component and bits [31:16] must be zero.

ctrl->val should therefore be setting dev->colourfx.u and
dev->colourfx.v with those masks. dev->colourfx.enable field should
have been set when going through ctrl_set_image_effect for contol
V4L2_CID_COLORFX set to V4L2_COLORFX_SET_CBCR.

I've confirmed with qv4l2 that that is what is wrong. That's only been
lurking there for almost 5 years - shows how often these weirder
effects get used.
I don't mind whether Colin's patch gets merged and then fixed up, or
drop Colin's patch and apply the correct logic via a new patch.

  Dave
