[media] DocBook: Mark CROPCAP as optional instead of as compulsory
While the documentation says that VIDIOC_CROPCAP is compulsory for all video capture and output devices, in practice VIDIOC_CROPCAP is only implemented for devices that can do cropping and/or scaling. Update the documentation to no longer require VIDIOC_CROPCAP if the driver does not support cropping or scaling or non-square pixels.
