+ <para>To retrieve the current crop rectangle applications set the
+ <structfield>pad</structfield> field of a &v4l2-subdev-crop; to the
+ desired pad number as reported by the media API and the
+ <structfield>which</structfield> field to
+ <constant>V4L2_SUBDEV_FORMAT_ACTIVE</constant>. They then call the
+ <constant>VIDIOC_SUBDEV_G_CROP</constant> ioctl with a pointer to this
+ structure. The driver fills the members of the <structfield>rect</structfield>
+ field or returns &EINVAL; if the input arguments are invalid, or if cropping
+ is not supported on the given pad.</para>
+
+ <para>To change the current crop rectangle applications set both the
+ <structfield>pad</structfield> and <structfield>which</structfield> fields
+ and all members of the <structfield>rect</structfield> field. They then call
+ the <constant>VIDIOC_SUBDEV_S_CROP</constant> ioctl with a pointer to this
+ structure. The driver verifies the requested crop rectangle, adjusts it
+ based on the hardware capabilities and configures the device. Upon return
+ the &v4l2-subdev-crop; contains the current format as would be returned
+ by a <constant>VIDIOC_SUBDEV_G_CROP</constant> call.</para>
+
+ <para>Applications can query the device capabilities by setting the
+ <structfield>which</structfield> to
+ <constant>V4L2_SUBDEV_FORMAT_TRY</constant>. When set, 'try' crop
+ rectangles are not applied to the device by the driver, but are mangled
+ exactly as active crop rectangles and stored in the sub-device file handle.
+ Two applications querying the same sub-device would thus not interact with
+ each other.</para>
+
+ <para>Drivers must not return an error solely because the requested crop
+ rectangle doesn't match the device capabilities. They must instead modify
+ the rectangle to match what the hardware can provide. The modified format
+ should be as close as possible to the original request.</para>
