Ah yes, thanks for the reminder.

Jernej, when you post the next version of this series, can you change the text
above to:

- Flush any held capture buffers. Only valid for stateless decoders.
This command is typically used when the application reached the
end of the stream and the last output buffer had the
``V4L2_BUF_FLAG_M2M_HOLD_CAPTURE_BUF`` flag set. This would prevent
dequeueing the capture buffer containing the last decoded frame.
So this command can be used to explicitly flush that final decoded
frame. This command does nothing if there are no held capture buffers.

Regards,

Hans
