initialize the <structfield>index</structfield> field of &v4l2-input;

pointer to this structure. Drivers fill the rest of the structure or
return an &EINVAL; when the index is out of bounds. To enumerate all
inputs applications shall begin at index zero, incrementing by one
until the driver returns <errorcode>EINVAL</errorcode>.</para>

have to lie about the status in cases where it can't tell one way or
