It's interesting, does VP8/9 indicate how long a reference frame can be
held. My concern is that for truly zero-copy cases, you cannot push out
a buffer until they are no longer referenced, and that's why we have
large queues. The use case I know came from STM a long time ago, they
would burn in software the subtitles into the video frames. So as soon
as a buffer is release from the decoder, it's being dirtied, and cannot
be used as reference anymore.

In this case, on resolution changed, you have let say a reference of
resolution X, that you haven't pushed yet, because you have to keep it
clean. And you want to decode the next buffer of size Y. Because you
receive a request to drain, X will be pushed, and current userspace may
just dirty it before it actually re-queue the buffers.

Wouldn't the appropriate hack would be to have internal allocation and
do copies of the reference frames before you actually emit the
resolution change event ? It's in any case just a hack, since in 4K
it's unlikely to be seamless (real-time).

Another option is to force RO for VP9, for most cases it makes no
difference. And then we could just keep a ref on the buffer (like we do
for stateless) regardless if it's queued or not. As we can trust it
won't be dirtied.

The third option, you don't care about all this, because you have a
third queue of buffers, and use a special IP to transfer the decoded
images to CAPTURE buffer (e.g. could be detiling). That's the case for
CODA, and I think it can be the case for Amlogic since on S805 the
output format is unusable, not sure what's the status of the CODEC
there.

p.s. we could have a different semantic depending if the DMABuf are RO
or RW exported. But I think most userspace today uses RW exportation,
hence we cannot trust the buffer out to stay clean. That is different
with stateless, since this is managed by userspace.
