     Tell the UI that something interesting has happened at a plugin port.

     What is interesting and how it is written to the buffer passed to this
     function is defined by the @c format parameter, which has the same meaning
     as in LV2UI_Write_Function.  The only exception is ports of the class
     lv2:ControlPort, for which this function should be called when the port
     value changes (it does not have to be called for every single change if
     the host's UI thread has problems keeping up with the thread the plugin is
     running in), @c buffer_size should be 4, the buffer should contain a
     single IEEE-754 float, and @c format should be 0.

     By default, the host should only call this function for input ports of the
     lv2:ControlPort class.  However, the default setting can be modified by
     using the following URIs in the UI's RDF data:
     <pre>
     uiext:portNotification
     uiext:noPortNotification
     uiext:plugin
     uiext:portIndex
     </pre>
     For example, if you want the UI with uri
     <code><http://my.pluginui></code> for the plugin with URI
     <code><http://my.plugin></code> to get notified when the value of the
     output control port with index 4 changes, you would use the following
     in the RDF for your UI:
     <pre>
     <http://my.pluginui> uiext:portNotification [ uiext:plugin <http://my.plugin> ;
     uiext:portIndex 4 ] .
     </pre>
     and similarly with <code>uiext:noPortNotification</code> if you wanted
     to prevent notifications for a port for which it would be on by default
     otherwise. The UI is not allowed to request notifications for ports of
     types for which no transfer mechanism is specified, if it does it should
     be considered broken and the host should not load it.

     The @c buffer is only valid during the time of this function call, so if
     the UI wants to keep it for later use it has to copy the contents to an
     internal buffer.

     This member may be set to NULL if the UI is not interested in any
     port events.
