Well, I personally don't mind to have some audio capability in v4l2
layer.  But, the only uncertain thing for now is whether this is a
must-have or not.

IIRC, the implementation in the sound driver side was never done just
because there was no similar implementation?  If so, and if the
extension to the v4l2 core layer is needed, shouldn't it be more
considered for the possible other route?
