Specs ITU-T REC. H.265 (06/2019), chapter 7.3.4 shows that multiple different matrices can be present at the same time. If they are not, default values should be used instead. But in general, more than one can be needed at the same time.
Only real question is if default values should be also provided by userspace or by kernel. Since place has to be reserved for all different scaling lists anyway, we won't save any space by providing default values in kernel. Cedrus VPU has only bit switch for using default values for all matrices at the same time or all custom.
Note that this control contains slightly processed data. Frame has stored these matrices in form of deltas. But because this is the only driver that use this structure I have no idea what is the most proper form of this data (raw values or deltas). That's why this will stay in staging using private headers until we figure this out.
Best regards, Jernej
