I believe we need to revisit the naming here. In most documents I've
read, start code refers to a header that allow parsing a bit stream
from a random location. In H264, this is used as synonyme of ANNEX B
NAL Headers. In this context, the obvious future value to this enum is
AVCc headers, which is not a start code.

I would suggest to revisite and rename to:

V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_H264_NAL_HDR_TYPE
