Hi Laurent,

One may find similar sentences in MMAP, USERPTR and DMABUF.
Maybe the common parts like description of STREAMON/OFF,
QBUF/DQBUF shuffling should be moved to separate section
like "Streaming" :).

Maybe it is worth to introduce a separate patch for this change.

Frankly, I would prefer to keep the Doc in the current form till
importer support gets merged. Later the Doc could be fixed.

BTW. What is the sense of merging userptr and dmabuf section
if userptr is going to dropped in long-term?
