Yes these values are not driver specific.
I followed the way MAX_QP and MIN_QP are defined for other codecs like
H264, H263, MPEG4 where only valid range is mentioned.

If we set V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_MAX_QP as 50 then
V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_B_FRAME_QP or
4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_I_FRAME_QP or
V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_P_FRAME_QP will have maximum as 50.
Similarly for minimum as well, the above three controls will adhere to
the V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_MIN_QP set.
These controls have similar in relation as seen with
V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_P_FRAME_QP and V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_MAX_QP

The values set in V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_MIN_QP and
V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_HEVC_MAX_QP will give the limits for the L0-L6 QP
values that can be set.
