From: Pawel Osciak <posciak@chromium.org>

Stateless video codecs will require both the H264 metadata and slices in
order to be able to decode frames.

This introduces the definitions for a new pixel format for H264 slices that
have been parsed, as well as the structures used to pass the metadata from
the userspace to the kernel.

Hi Maxime,

A quick review below. Note that I am no expert on the codec details, so
I leave that to others. I'm mainly concentrating on the structs, flags, etc.

This should be moved to just before 'frame_num' as per the actual struct.

These two fields should be moved to just before the slice_group_change_cycle

This is outdated: it's a __u64 timestamp.

You can copy the struct backward_ref_ts documentation from struct
v4l2_ctrl_mpeg2_slice_params and edit it a bit for H.264.

Where does 255 come from? Should this be a define?

If this is not based on the standard but instead a driver limitation, then
I think that should be documented. In that case I assume that if more is needed
in the future, then that will be done through additional controls.

Same question here.

I assume [0] is for luma and [1] is for chroma? Should be documented.

And 16?

Nothing special needs to be done for those constants that are based on the
standard. But if it isn't part of the standard but a driver constraint, then
that should be documented, and there should be an idea on how it can be
extended for future drivers without that constraint.

I think the API should be designed with 4k video in mind. So if some of
these constants would be too small when dealing with 4k (even if the
current HW doesn't support this yet), then these constants would have to
be increased.

And yes, I know 8k video is starting to appear, but I think it is OK
that additional control(s) would be needed to support 8k.

Hmm, 4k (and up) is much more likely to use HEVC. So perhaps designing this
for 4k is overkill.

Does anyone know if H.264 is used for 4k video at all? If not (or if very
rare), then just ignore this.

Nicolas and I have discussed the pixel format, and came up with
the following proposal.

Given this format represents H264 parsed slices, without any start code,
perhpaps we name it as:

V4L2_PIX_FMT_H264_SLICE_RAW

Then, we'd also add:

V4L2_PIX_FMT_H264_SLICE_ANNEX_B

To represent H264 parsed slices with annex B (3- or 4-byte) start code.
This one is what the Rockchip VPU driver would expose.

Ideas?

this is indexed relative to num_ref_frames_in_pic_order_cnt_cycle
(right before), which is defined in 7.4.2.1.1 as being between 0 and
255.

As per 7.4.3.1 the second index refer to Cb (0) and 1 Cr(). And the 32
is the maximum number of RefPicList0, as limited by the range of 
num_ref_idx_l0_active_minus1 (if I read properly). This will never
change, so if we add defines it would only be for documentation purpose
I think.

It's the range of num_ref_idx_l0_active_minus1,

H264 DPB size cannot exceed 16, that's well known normally.

Note that these integers (+383, ..) are already in-use.

Since the controls are non-public, perhaps we could use upper integers,
say +1000 or something?

I think we discussed that idea already, and I'm all for it.

I don't know the state of it right now, but until quite recently
youtube at least was encoding their 4k videos in both VP9 and
H264. They might have moved to h265 since, but considering 4k doesn't
seem unreasonable.

Just asked the multimedia team here, and they say that 4k videos are in
fact widely used for both H264 and VP9 because of the HEVC licensing issues,
and because gains in compressions are not so impressive.
