[media] vb2: fix nasty vb2_thread regression
The vb2_thread implementation was made generic and was moved from videobuf2-v4l2.c to videobuf2-core.c in commit af3bac1a. Unfortunately that clearly was never tested since it broke read() causing NULL address references. The root cause was confused handling of vb2_buffer vs v4l2_buffer (the pb pointer in various core functions). The v4l2_buffer no longer exists after moving the code into the core and it is no longer needed. However, the vb2_thread code passed a pointer to a vb2_buffer to the core functions were a v4l2_buffer pointer was expected and vb2_thread expected that the vb2_buffer fields would be filled in correctly. This is obviously wrong since v4l2_buffer != vb2_buffer. Note that the pb pointer is a void pointer, so no type-checking took place. This patch fixes this problem: 1) allow pb to be NULL for vb2_core_(d)qbuf. The vb2_thread code will use a NULL pointer here since they don't care about v4l2_buffer anyway. 2) let vb2_core_dqbuf pass back the index of the received buffer. This is all vb2_thread needs: this index is the index into the q->bufs array and vb2_thread just gets the vb2_buffer from there. 3) the fileio->b pointer (that originally contained a v4l2_buffer) is removed altogether since it is no longer needed. Tested with vivid and the cobalt driver.
