+ <para>While the <link linkend="selection-api">V4L2 selection
+ API</link> and <link linkend="v4l2-subdev-selections">V4L2 subdev
+ selection APIs</link> are very similar, there's one fundamental
+ difference between the two. On sub-device API, the selection
+ rectangle refers to the media bus format, and is bound to a
+ sub-device's pad. On the V4L2 interface the selection rectangles
+ refer to the in-memory pixel format.</para>

+ selection interfaces on the two APIs.</para>
