The V4L2 encoder API does _not_ configure the bitstream width and
height currently. Scaling is not defined in the API at the moment. As
per the spec [1], the CAPTURE width and height fields are
ignored/read-only.

[1] https://www.kernel.org/doc/html/latest/userspace-api/media/v4l/dev-encoder.html#initialization

Currently there are following parameters configured by the V4L2 API:

OUTPUT format width: the number of pixels per line of the input
buffer, including any padding pixels, i.e. stride in pixels,
OUTPUT format height: the total number of lines of the input buffer.
including or not, any padding lines (for NV12 non-M format any padding
lines must be included, as plane offsets are calculated based on
this),
CROP left, width: horizontal position of valid pixel data in the
buffer; left is typically 0 and width can be less than OUTPUT format
width,
CROP top, height: vertical position of valid pixel data in the buffer:
top is typically 0 and height can be less than OUTPUT format height,

Okay, so do I get it correctly that without extradata, the firmware
can only handle the case where width == stride?

If so, it sounds like this extradata should be generated by the driver
internally based on the selection CROP rectangle. In fact, the driver
already seems to have a definition of struct hfi_extradata_input_crop
[2]. So perhaps it wouldn't require much effort to implement the crop
properly?
