As the value is only written to hardware registers later, not in the s_ctrl() 
handler, a cluster is (probably) not mandatory if the driver uses proper 
locking. Otherwise there will be no guarantee that setting both hflip and 
vflip in a single VIDIOC_S_EXT_CTRLS call will not result in one frame with 
only hflip or vflip applied.
