[PATCH] v4l: Add source event change for bit-depth




This event indicate that the source bit-depth is changed during
run-time. The client must get the new format and re-allocate buffers
for it. This can usually happens with video decoder (encoders) when
the bit-stream depth is changed from 8 to 10bits or vice versa.
