I think it indeed makes sense. I'd suggest submitting this patch
together with the series that adds the affected driver, though, since
we'd be otherwise just adding a dead API.

Also, it would be good to refer to it from the Decoder Interface
documentation. Depending on which one gets in earlier, you might
either want to base on it or I'd add a note myself.

Best regards,
Tomasz
