No. If I understand your code correctly (sorry, I have very little
time and it's likely I misunderstand because I just skimmed
over your code), you use it to open the I2C gate for every i2c
transaction which v4l does, no matter what part v4l is talking to.
The "rename" thing was just to tease you ;-), I still don't get
why you can't use it specifically for the VIDIOC_SET_FREQ ioctl
and nowhere else?

Probably you should doubt me and not yourself. When it comes
to v4l internals I'm pretty clueless ;-/
