The buffers used for yuv output are fixed. They are located both before
and after the framebuffer. Their offset is fixed at 'base_addr +
IVTV_DECODER_OFFSET + yuv_offset[]'. The yuv offsets can be found in
'ivtv-yuv.c'. The buffers are 622080 bytes in length.

The range would be from 'base_addr + 0x01000000 + 0x00029000' to
'base_addr + 0x01000000 + 0x00748200 + 0x97dff'. This is larger than
required, but will catch the framebuffer and should not cause any
problems. If you wanted to render direct to the yuv buffers, you would
probably want this region included anyway (not that the current driver
supports that).
