This series adds a v4l2 memory2memory decoder driver for Allwinner's
VPU found in the A13 SoC. It follows the reverse engineering effort
of the Cedrus [1] project.

The VPU is able to decode a bunch of formats but currently only MPEG2
and a subset of MPEG4 are supported by the driver, more will come

This VPU needs a frame-by-frame registers programming and implements
the idea of "Frame API" [2] proposed by Pawel Osciak. (i.e: binding
standard frame headers with frames via the "Request API") The patchset
includes both a new control for MPEG2 and MPEG4 frame headers. The
MPEG2 control should be generic enough for every other drivers but the
MPEG4 control sticks to the bare minimum needed by sunxi-cedrus.

The "Frame API" relies on the controls features of the "Request API".
[3] Since the latest Request API RFCs don't support controls and
given the time I had to work on this driver, I chose to use an older
RFC from Hans. [4] Of course, this is definitely not meant to be kept
and as soon as a newer Request API will support controls I'll stick
to the newest code base.

If you are interested in testing this driver, you can find a recently
(v4.8rc3) rebased version of this request API along my patchset in
this repository. [5] I also developed a libVA backend interfacing
with my proposal of MPEG2 and MPEG4 Frame API. [6] It's called 
"sunxi-cedrus-drv-video" but the only sunxi-cedrus specific part is
the format conversion code. Overall it should be generic enough for
any other v4l driver using the Frame API and as soon as the support
of DRM planes for this pixel format will be added it could be
renamed to something more generic.
