The selections are used to configure various image processing
functionality performed by the subdevs which affect the image size. This
currently includes cropping, scaling and composition.
The selection API replaces
:ref:`the old subdev crop API <VIDIOC_SUBDEV_G_CROP>`. All the
function of the crop API, and more, are supported by the selections API.
See :ref:`subdev` for more information on how each selection target
affects the image processing pipeline inside the subdevice.
Types of selection targets
There are two types of selection targets: actual and bounds. The actual
targets are the targets which configure the hardware. The BOUNDS target
will return a rectangle that contain all possible actual rectangles.
Discovering supported features
To discover which targets are supported, the user can perform
``VIDIOC_SUBDEV_G_SELECTION`` on them. Any unsupported target will
return ``EINVAL``.
Selection targets and flags are documented in

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 selection rectangle 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 :c:type:`v4l2_subdev_selection`
``pad`` references a non-existing pad, the ``which`` field
references a non-existing format, or the selection target is not
supported on the given subdev pad.
