Thanks a lot for helping with remaining changes.

Just one thing inline our team member found recently.

The client should be able to set the width and height as well. It's a
quite frequent case, especially in DMA-buf import mode, that the
buffers are actually bigger (e.g. more alignment) than what we could
get from the decoder by default. For sane hardware platforms it's
reasonable to expect that such bigger buffers could be handled as
well, as long as we update the width and height here.

It's more like a clarification anyway, so if you think it would be
better to just merge the current revision, I could send a follow up
patch.

Regardless of that and FWIW:
