 * struct media_file_operations - Media device file operations

 * @read: pointer to the function that implements read() syscall
 * @write: pointer to the function that implements write() syscall
 * @poll: pointer to the function that implements poll() syscall
 * @ioctl: pointer to the function that implements ioctl() syscall
 * @compat_ioctl: pointer to the function that will handle 32 bits userspace
 *      calls to the the ioctl() syscall on a Kernel compiled with 64 bits.
 * @open: pointer to the function that implements open() syscall
 * @release: pointer to the function that will release the resources allocated
 *      by the @open function.

 * struct media_devnode - Media device node
 * @media_dev:  pointer to struct &media_device

 * @dev:        pointer to struct &device containing the media controller device
 * @cdev:       struct cdev pointer character device
 * @parent:     parent device
 * @minor:      device node minor number
 * @flags:      flags, combination of the ``MEDIA_FLAG_*`` constants
 * @release:    release callback called at the end of ``media_devnode_release()``
 *              routine at media-device.c.
 * This structure represents a media-related device node.
 * The @parent is a physical device. It must be set by core or device drivers
 * before registering the node.

 * media_devnode_register - register a media device node
 * @mdev: struct media_device we want to register a device node
 * @devnode: media device node structure we want to register
 * @owner: should be filled with %THIS_MODULE
 * The registration code assigns minor numbers and registers the new device node
 * with the kernel. An error is returned if no free minor number can be found,
 * or if the registration of the device node fails.
 * Zero is returned on success.
 * Note that if the media_devnode_register call fails, the release() callback of
 * the media_devnode structure is *not* called, so the caller is responsible for
 * freeing any data.

					struct module *owner);

 * media_devnode_unregister_prepare - clear the media device node register bit
 * @devnode: the device node to prepare for unregister
 * This clears the passed device register bit. Future open calls will be met
 * with errors. Should be called before media_devnode_unregister() to avoid
 * races with unregister and device file open calls.
 * This function can safely be called if the device node has never been
 * registered or has already been unregistered.
void media_devnode_unregister_prepare(struct media_devnode *devnode);

 * media_devnode_unregister - unregister a media device node
 * @devnode: the device node to unregister
 * This unregisters the passed device. Future open calls will be met with
 * errors.
 * Should be called after media_devnode_unregister_prepare()
void media_devnode_unregister(struct media_devnode *devnode);

 * media_devnode_data - returns a pointer to the &media_devnode
 * @filp: pointer to struct &file
