Ok that wasn't clear. So basically video9 is a front-end to video10,
and it does not proxy the enumerations. I understand this is what you
are now fixing. And this has to be fixed, because I can image cases
where the front-end could support only a subset of the sub-dev. So
having userspace enumerate on another device (and having to find this
device by walking the tree) is unlikely to work in all scenarios.

Nicolas

p.s. This is why caps negotiation is annoyingly complex in GStreamer,
specially that there is no shortcut, you connect pads, and they figure-
out what format they will use between each other.[unhandled content-type:application/pgp-signature]
