- <para>Applications can optionally call the
-<constant>VIDIOC_PREPARE_BUF</constant> ioctl to pass ownership of the buffer
-to the driver before actually enqueuing it, using the
-<constant>VIDIOC_QBUF</constant> ioctl, and to prepare it for future I/O.
-Such preparations may include cache invalidation or cleaning. Performing them
-in advance saves time during the actual I/O. In case such cache operations are
-not required, the application can use one of
-<constant>V4L2_BUF_FLAG_NO_CACHE_INVALIDATE</constant> and
-<constant>V4L2_BUF_FLAG_NO_CACHE_CLEAN</constant> flags to skip the respective
-step.</para>
