Pointer to struct :c:type:`v4l2_subdev_frame_interval`.
These ioctls are used to get and set the frame interval at specific
subdev pads in the image pipeline. The frame interval only makes sense
for sub-devices that can control the frame period on their own. This
includes, for instance, image sensors and TV tuners. Sub-devices that
don't support frame intervals must not implement these ioctls.
To retrieve the current frame interval applications set the ``pad``
field of a struct
:c:type:`v4l2_subdev_frame_interval` to
the desired pad number as reported by the media controller API. When
they call the ``VIDIOC_SUBDEV_G_FRAME_INTERVAL`` ioctl with a pointer to
this structure the driver fills the members of the ``interval`` field.
To change the current frame interval applications set both the ``pad``
field and all members of the ``interval`` field. When they call the
``VIDIOC_SUBDEV_S_FRAME_INTERVAL`` ioctl with a pointer to this
structure the driver verifies the requested interval, adjusts it based
on the hardware capabilities and configures the device. Upon return the
contains the current frame interval as would be returned by a
Drivers must not return an error solely because the requested interval
doesn't match the device capabilities. They must instead modify the
interval to match what the hardware can provide. The modified interval
should be as close as possible to the original request.
Changing the frame interval shall never change the format. Changing the
format, on the other hand, may change the frame interval.
Sub-devices that support the frame interval ioctls should implement them
on a single pad only. Their behaviour when supported on multiple pads of
the same sub-device is not defined.

Return Value
On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the ``errno`` variable is set
appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the
:ref:`Generic Error Codes <gen-errors>` chapter.
The frame interval can't be changed because the pad is currently
busy. This can be caused, for instance, by an active video stream on
the pad. The ioctl must not be retried without performing another
action to fix the problem first. Only returned by
The struct
``pad`` references a non-existing pad, or the pad doesn't support
frame intervals.
