    <para>To query the attributes of a video outputs applications
initialize the <structfield>index</structfield> field of &v4l2-output;
and call the <constant>VIDIOC_ENUMOUTPUT</constant> ioctl with a
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
outputs applications shall begin at index zero, incrementing by one
until the driver returns <errorcode>EINVAL</errorcode>.</para>
