From: Niklas Söderlund <niklas.soderlund+renesas@ragnatech.se>

Add a new V4L2_EVENT_XFER_ERROR event to signal if a unrecoverable error
happens during video transfer.

The use-case that sparked this new event is to signal to the video
device driver that an error has happen on the CSI-2 bus from the CSI-2
receiver subdevice.
