We need to set ->need_cache_sync_on_prepare and
->need_cache_sync_on_finish when we initialize vb2 buffer.

Currently these flags are set/adjusted only in V4L2's
vb2_queue_or_prepare_buf(), which means that for the code
paths that don't use V4L2 vb2 will always tell videobuf2
core to skip ->prepare() and ->finish() cache syncs/flushes.

This is a quick solution that should do the trick. The
proper fix, however, is much more complicated and requires
a rather big videobuf2 refactoring - we need to move cache
sync/flush decision making out of core videobuf2 to the

v2: add a comment and set cache sync flags only for specific buffers (Hans)
