Subject[PATCH v9 3/4] media: pixfmt: Add H264_SLICE_RAW format documentation
Date
The H264_SLICE_RAW format introduced before is meant for stateless
decoders that will need the H264 parsed slice data without the start code.

Let's document it.

+ - H264 parsed slice data, without the start code and as
+ extracted from the H264 bitstream. This format is adapted for
+ stateless video decoders that implement an H264 pipeline
+ (using the :ref:`mem2mem` and :ref:`media-request-api`).
+ Metadata associated with the frame to decode are required to
+ be passed through the ``V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_SPS``,
+ ``V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_PPS``,
+ ``V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_SCALING_MATRIX``,
+ ``V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_SLICE_PARAMS`` and
+ ``V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_DECODE_PARAMS`` controls. See the
+ :ref:`associated Codec Control IDs <v4l2-mpeg-h264>`. Exactly
+ one output and one capture buffer must be provided for use
+ with this pixel format. The output buffer must contain the
+ appropriate number of macroblocks to decode a full
+ corresponding frame to the matching capture buffer.
+
+ .. note::
+
+ This format is not yet part of the public kernel API and it
+ is expected to change.
