Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] video: simplify cx18_get_input() and ivtv_get_input()

From: Márton Németh <nm127@...email.hu>

The cx18_get_input() and ivtv_get_input() are called
once from the VIDIOC_ENUMINPUT ioctl() (see
drivers/media/video/v4l2-ioctl.c:1165) and once from
the *_log_status() functions. In the first case the
struct v4l2_input is already filled with zeros,
so doing this again is unnecessary.

The second case is only used for debugging purposes
from the VIDIOC_LOG_STATUS ioctl(). Currently only
the "name" field is used in the *_log_status() functions.
