Hello, third iteration following:

"media: v4l2-ctrls: Add camera sensor location"
https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/linux-media/list/?series=160901
"[v2,00/10] media: Report camera sensor properties
https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11116443/

Compared to v2 I have dropped the two patches reporting the sensor pixel array
size and active areas size

v2->v3:
- Expand 'rotation' property description
- s/device/system in properties description to make them applicable to
  cameras and flash LEDs
- Expand the rotation control description
- Split helper to parse properties and helper to register properties
- Drop the example coreboot patch that add properties to the Soraka device
  ACPI tables

I know there are still doubts the two properties might well apply to
modern devices with movable cameras, but I still think they cover 99% of devices
out there at the moment.

Thanks

Add the 'location' device property, used to specify a device mounting
position. The property is particularly meaningful for mobile devices
with a well defined usage orientation.

orientation of the axis around which the device mounting rotation is
expressed.

+``V4L2_CID_CAMERA_SENSOR_ROTATION (integer)``
+    This read-only control describes the sensor orientation expressed as
+    rotation in counterclockwise degrees along the axis perpendicular to the
+    device mounting plane, and directed away from the sensor lens. Possible
+    values for the control are 90, 180 and 270 degrees. To compensate the device
+    mounting rotation on the captured images, a rotation of the same amount of
+    degrees, in the same counterclockwise rotation direction should be applied
+    along the axis directed from the observer to the captured image when
+    displayed on a screen.
+
+    To better understand the effect of the sensor rotation on the acquired
+    images when displayed on a screen, it is helpful to consider a fictional
+    scan-out sequence of the sensor's pixels, assuming the pixel array having
+    its top-left pixel at position (0, 0) with values on the 'x' axis increasing
+    towards the right direction, and values on the 'y' axis increasing towards
+    the bottom. The effect of sensor rotation could be easily visualized
+    considering the sequence of captured pixels.
+
+    Assuming the following scene has to be captured::
+
+                o
+               -|-
+               / \
+
+    An upright mounted sensor has its pixel array displaced as follow::

+              ! (num-col,0)...  (num-col,line-len)
+            y V
+
+
+    Assuming pixels are scanned out from (0,0) to (num-col,line-len)
+    progressively::
+
+             (0,0) ---->-------------> (0,line-len)---!

+
+
+    If a rotation of 90 degrees counterclockwise along the axis perpendicular to
+    the sensor's lens and directed towards the scene to be captured is applied
+    to the sensor, the pixel array would then be rotated as follows::
+
+            x ^  0,line-len,,,(num-col,line-len
+              !  ....
+              !  0,2 1,2      ...

+                                   y
+
+    And the pixel scan-out sequence would then proceed as follows::
+
+            (0,line-len)            (num-cols,line-len)

Add an helper function to parse common device properties in the same
way as v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_parse() parses common endpoint properties.

Initially parse the 'rotation' and 'location' properties from the
firmware interface.

Add an helper function to v4l2-ctrls to register controls associated
with a device property. Add an UNSET flag to the device properties to
distinguish uninitialized properties from properties with an actual
value at control registration time.

This sentence is a bit awkward. How about this:

location: The mount location of a device (typically an image sensor or a flash LED)
expressed as a position relative to the usage orientation of the system where the
device is installed on.

Actually, I'd move the For to the next line.

I think you mean 'but is' instead of 'or is'.

Same as with patch 1/11:

"The mount rotation of the device (typically an image sensor) expressed..."

Is this right? Shouldn't that be "in the clockwise direction"? If the sensor is
mounted 90 degrees counterclockwise, then I need to rotate by 90 degrees clockwise
to compensate for that, right?

Isn't that 0,0 ... 0,num-col?
line-len is a weird name, shouldn't that be num-lines?

line-len sounds like it is the same as num-col.

I'm totally confused.

Are these dev_dbg lines really needed? It seems a bit overkill to me.

What if rotation is set, but not location. Then location defaults to Front.
Is that what we want, or should we add an UNKNOWN location?

Hmm, let's call this:

v4l2_ctrl_new_fwnode_properties().

You don't register properties, you add new controls representing properties.

And v4l2_ctrl_new_ is in line with existing functions that create controls.

No need for v4l2_ctrl_find: if the control already exists, then the
control framework will automatically ignore the duplicate control.

Ditto.

I like this split into one fwnode parse function and one ctrl function
much better.

Ah, that answers my previous question about unset properties.

I think this fwnode addition should be done in a separate earlier patch.

And it needs a comment.

It really depend along which axis direction you are applying the mounting

Along which axis direction are you rotating the camera counterclockwise ?

If you see your face, and you rotate the camera counterclockwise while
looking at it, you're actually rotating along the axis directed -towards-
the sensor.

The rotation here in the example and in the 'rotation' property
description has to be applied along the axis pointing aways from the
sensor, so what you're actually doing is rotating clockwise along that
direction (I guess)... So yes, to compensate that, you need to rotate
clockwise when you look at the image on the screen... Confusing,
right?

It's the same debug output we have in v4l2_fwnode_endpoint_parse() so
I tried to be consistent. Should I drop it?

As you have noticed I have added a value to encode UNKNOW in the later
patch, I should probably add them in this one as you suggested ?

I think you are right, but let me take another look at this when v4 is
posted. The line-len/num-col confusion didn't help :-)

I don't think this is nearly enough of description. We have phones
with displays and cameras at both sides, where both sides can be used
to operate the system.

We have phone with display spanning both sides -- Mi Max.

https://www.idnes.cz/mobil/telefony/xiaomi-mi-mix-alpha-predstaveni.A190924_105858_telefony_oma

We have Galaxy Fold.

https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/galaxy-fold/

What is front side when device can be used in different
configurations?

Could we instead say that it is "main" vs "selfie" camera?

Notebooks usually have just "selfie" camera, tablets often have
both... DSLRs have just "main" camera.

Best regards,

									Pavel

I'm not sure the intended usage is something that belongs to DT. And
'selfie' implies you have a device side facing you, most like the
'front' one I have defined here.

Not to mention again this devices are all but supported by mainline,
which is just a partial justification as they might be an indication
of a trend.

There is no usable reference place, reference side, reference usage
mode that applies to -all- devices in the world, not one I can think
of.

I still think defining a location property is not blocking any new
extension that accommodate more advanced use cases. It's not like we're
adding a "front-camera" property, it's a "location" and you can expand
its accepted values with "front-when-device-folded" or whatever you
need for future devices.

In the description I mentioned the "usage orientation" to leave room
for possible device-specific details in the definition of the values
accepted by the property.

> > +  location expressed as a position relative to the usage orientation of the

99% of devices in the world have a front and a back, as well as they
have a top and a bottom. I still don't see why if a device does not
simply has a front it cannot use something different. The property
definition allows you to do so.
