I'm not entirely sure, but my understanding was that it might be used
when streaming over network where some packets might be lost and
re-emitted later on.

I remember seeing the ASO acronym mentioned in the hantro G1 spec, but
at the same time we're doing frame-based decoding, so I guess the HW
block expects slices to be ordered in that case. Honestly I don't know,
so let's keep the code as-is.
