HI Kieran,

Yes this have been a confusing workaround to have in the code and it's 
blocking many other things I wish to do with the driver.

Yes. But it's still the default behavior to combine V4L2_FIELD_ALTERNATE 
into V4L2_FIELD_INTERLACED if the sensor reports V4L2_FIELD_ALTERNATE as 
I do not wish to change the user-space behavior. This only happens if 
V4L2_FIELD_ANY is requested by the user. This patch allows the user to 
request V4L2_FIELD_ALTERNATE and get it.

I will try to expand the commit message thanks for pointing it out.

Good point, will do so for next version.

It's awesome when someone answer there own questions ;-)

Correct.

Yes, the current user-space behavior is to always combine alternate to 
interlaced. With this change the user can request V4L2_FIELD_ALTERNATE 
and get it but if V4L2_FIELD_ANY is asked for it still gets 
V4L2_FIELD_INTERLACED (if the sensor delivers V4L2_FIELD_ALTERNATE).

Yes.

I don't think you are so confused about this change you got it all 
correctly ;-) Thanks for your effort in reviewing this!
