Hi Ricardo,

As per our irc discussion, here is a proposal how I think it can be done.
The core problem is that for compound types we want to provide a default
value that can be used in std_init_compound() without having to provide
our own type ops. The new v4l2_ctrl_new_std_compound would pass a const
pointer to the struct with the default value, and std_init_compound
should use that if p_def != NULL.

I think this is beneficial for the various codec compound types as well.

Implementing this in v4l2-ctrls.c is left as an exercise for the reader
(i.e., you!).

Regards,

	Hans
