Hans Verkuil - March 8, 2019, 1:56 p.m.
If the subdevice created a device node, then the v4l2_subdev cannot
be freed until the last user of the device node closes it.

This means that we need a release() callback in v4l2_subdev_internal_ops
that is called from the video_device release function so the subdevice
driver can postpone freeing memory until the that callback is called.

If no video device node was created then the release callback can
be called immediately when the subdev is unregistered.
