We currently install the v4l2-compat.so to the same location as

With this name, a generic library directory might not be very clear that
this is the libcamera compatibility library.

First fixt he ipa manager to prevent loading non-ipa modules that happen
to be under $libdir/libcamera and then move the v4l2-compat.so to that

Note that the android libcamera-hal.so could also now move here, and/or
the v4l2-compat.so could have the 'libcamera' name directly in the .so
