I think Philipp Zabel submitted a patch which addresses these
in media-ctl. Check with him.

Right, imx-media-capture.c (the "standard" v4l2 user interface module)
is not implementing VIDIOC_ENUM_FRAMESIZES. It should, but it can only
return the single frame size that the pipeline has configured (the mbus
format of the attached source pad).

In v5 I added validation of frame intervals between pads,
but due to negative feedback I've pulled that. So next
version will not attempt to validate frame intervals between
source->sink pads.

Can you share your gstreamer pipeline? For now, until
VIDIOC_ENUM_FRAMESIZES is implemented, try a pipeline that
does not attempt to specify a frame rate. I use the attached
script for testing, which works for me.

Thanks, I've fixed most of v4l2-compliance issues, but this is not
done yet. Is that something you can help with?
