Subject: [PATCH] media: intel-ipu3: cio2: register the mdev on v4l2 async notifier complete

Commit 9832e155f1ed ("[media] media-device: split media initialization and
registration") split the media_device_register() function in two, to avoid
a race condition that can happen when the media device node is accessed by
userpace before the pending subdevices have been asynchronously registered.

But the ipu3-cio2 driver calls the media_device_register() function right
after calling media_device_init() which defeats the purpose of having two
separate functions.

In that case, userspace could have a partial view of the media device if
it opened the media device node before all the pending devices have been
bound. So instead, only register the media device once all pending v4l2
subdevices have been registered.

Fixes: 9832e155f1ed ("media: intel-ipu3: cio2: add new MIPI-CSI2 driver")
