Subject: [PATCH v5 1/2] [media] V4L: Add camera pan/tilt speed controls

The V4L2_CID_PAN_SPEED and V4L2_CID_TILT_SPEED controls allow to move the
camera by setting its rotation speed around its axis.

Signed-off-by: Vincent Palatin <>
Reviewed-by: Pawel Osciak <>
Changes from v1:
- update the documentation wording according to Pawel suggestion.
Changes from v2:
- bump Linux kernel version for the API change.
