58	    <para>This ioctl lets applications enumerate available frame intervals on a
59	    given sub-device pad. Frame intervals only makes sense for sub-devices that
60	    can control the frame period on their own. This includes, for instance,
61	    image sensors and TV tuners.</para>
62	
63	    <para>For the common use case of image sensors, the frame intervals
64	    available on the sub-device output pad depend on the frame format and size
65	    on the same pad. Applications must thus specify the desired format and size
66	    when enumerating frame intervals.</para>
67	
68	    <para>To enumerate frame intervals applications initialize the
69	    <structfield>index</structfield>, <structfield>pad</structfield>,
70	    <structfield>code</structfield>, <structfield>width</structfield> and
71	    <structfield>height</structfield> fields of
72	    &v4l2-subdev-frame-interval-enum; and call the
73	    <constant>VIDIOC_SUBDEV_ENUM_FRAME_INTERVAL</constant> ioctl with a pointer
74	    to this structure. Drivers fill the rest of the structure or return
75	    an &EINVAL; if one of the input fields is invalid. All frame intervals are
76	    enumerable by beginning at index zero and incrementing by one until
77	    <errorcode>EINVAL</errorcode> is returned.</para>
78	
79	    <para>Available frame intervals may depend on the current 'try' formats
80	    at other pads of the sub-device, as well as on the current active links. See
81	    &VIDIOC-SUBDEV-G-FMT; for more information about the try formats.</para>
82	
83	    <para>Sub-devices that support the frame interval enumeration ioctl should
84	    implemented it on a single pad only. Its behaviour when supported on
85	    multiple pads of the same sub-device is not defined.</para>
