I'm not sure that statement is entirely accurate. With the IMX219
camera, I _could_ (with previous iterations of the iMX capture code)
stop it streaming, wait a while, and restart it, and everything
continues to work.

Are you sure that the problem you have here is caused by the iMX6
rather than the ADV718x CVBS decoder (your initial description said
it was the decoder.)

If it _is_ the decoder that's going wrong, that doesn't justify
cripping the rest of the driver for one instance of broken hardware
that _might_ be attached to it.
