Description Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2013-12-03 15:06:09 UTC
Currently VIDIOC_REQBUFS is called each time the configuration of the buffer pool is changed. The problem is that VIDIOC_REQBUFS do allocated on the kernel size the required memory. Very often that memory is contiguous, which takes a lot of time to allocate, and locks a lot of resources. To add to this problem, certain driver don't allow calling this REQBUFS more then once, causing the buffer pool to be rejected.
