52	    <para>Applications use this function to query the cropping
53	limits, the pixel aspect of images and to calculate scale factors.
54	They set the <structfield>type</structfield> field of a v4l2_cropcap
55	structure to the respective buffer (stream) type and call the
56	<constant>VIDIOC_CROPCAP</constant> ioctl with a pointer to this
57	structure. Drivers fill the rest of the structure. The results are
58	constant except when switching the video standard. Remember this
59	switch can occur implicit when switching the video input or
60	output.</para>
61	
62	    <para>This ioctl must be implemented for video capture or output devices that
63	support cropping and/or scaling and/or have non-square pixels, and for overlay devices.</para>
