+ <para>As the video/audio devices become more complicated it
+becomes harder to debug problems. When this ioctl is called the driver
+will output the current device status to the kernel log. This is
+particular useful when dealing with problems like no sound, no video
+and incorrectly tuned channels. Also many modern devices autodetect
+video and audio standards and this ioctl will report what the device
+thinks what the standard is. Mismatches may give an indication where
+the problem is.</para>
+
+ <para>This ioctl is optional and not all drivers support it. It
+was introduced in Linux 2.6.15.</para>
