I disagree :-)

v4l2_ctrl_fill is the only function at the moment that fills in these fields.
Doing it elsewhere just for that type is inconsistent.

Also, v4l2_ctrl_fill is also called by some older drivers that do not use the
control framework yet, so it really has to be done there.

Another matter is that ivtv-controls.c uses non-zero max and step values for
these 64 bit controls, that should be fixed as well.

It wouldn't be difficult to make min/max/def of type s64. At this moment I do
not see a compelling reason, but if we get more 64-bit integer controls that
do need this, then we will have to add it.
