These ioctls are deprecated. New drivers and applications should use JPEG class controls for image quality and JPEG markers control.
Ronald Bultje elaborates:
APP is some application-specific information. The application can set it itself, and it'll be stored in the JPEG-encoded fields (eg; interlacing information for in an AVI or so). COM is the same, but it's comments, like 'encoded by me' or so.
jpeg_markers describes whether the huffman tables, quantization tables and the restart interval information (all JPEG-specific stuff) should be stored in the JPEG-encoded fields. These define how the JPEG field is encoded. If you omit them, applications assume you've used standard encoding. You usually do want to add them.

On success 0 is returned, on error -1 and the
errno variable is set appropriately. The generic error codes are described at the Generic Error Codes chapter.
