First thing to confirm: does the same configuration which does not work
with I-pipe enabled work with I-pipe disable. I mean, the exact same
configuration except for CONFIG_IPIPE?
Second thing: if the IPU dma engine, whatever, uses an interrupt, can
you compare the counters in /proc/interrupts for this interrupt with and
without CONFIG_IPIPE enabled?
