If I understand correctly that this decoder is stateless, there should
be no need for any special flush sequence, since a 1:1 relation
between OUTPUT and CAPTURE buffers is expected, which means that
userspace can just stop queuing new OUTPUT buffers and keep dequeuing
CAPTURE buffers until it matches all OUTPUT buffers queued before.

By the way, I guess we will also need some documentation for the
stateless codec interface. Do you or Maxime (who sent the H264 part)
have any plans to work on it? We have some internal documents, which
should be convertible to rst using pandoc, but we might need some help
with updating to latest request API and further editing. Alexandre
(moved from Cc to To) is going to be looking into this.

Best regards,
