[media] media: Entity use count
Due to the wide differences between drivers regarding power management needs, the media controller does not implement power management. However, the media_entity structure includes a use_count field that media drivers can use to track the number of users of every entity for power management needs. The use_count field is owned by media drivers and must not be touched by entity drivers. Access to the field must be protected by the media device graph_mutex lock.
