We had an ASO interrupt when we tried to do slice decoding rather then
frame. I believe on Hantro, the way to do ASO is to actually re-order
in software.

ASO is a feature of baseline profile use to reduce latency. As an
example, VA-API does not support baseline profile (only constrained-
baseline, which excludes ASO).
