Yes V4L2 control framework validates the ctrls before being set.

But these controls are initialized before session initialization. So 
s_ctrl tries to set property 
"HFI_PROPERTY_CONFIG_VENC_REQUEST_SYNC_FRAME" as a part of initializing 
all controls(session still in UNINIT state). But this is not any client 
request.

So we can keep a check to
1. ensure that its client requesting sync frame and
2. session in START state (both planes are streaming)

I will update the patch with these changes.
