These flags would only indicate how the frame / field pair / field is
referenced and not if the DPB entry was decoded as a frame or field pair.

Both hantro and rkvdec needs to know how the referenced frame / field pair
was decoded (not how it is referenced), my best guess is that MV is stored
differently for a frame (linear) and field pair (buffer split in two).

I think we should be able to track how the buffer was decoded similar to
how VP9 keep track of buffer width/height.

When I played with interlaced decoding of rkvdec a few weeks ago I
reverted flags to something similar as my initial rfc patch, see [1].
I guess it should be possible to keep current flags and track field_pic
in driver, some macro to simplify check for top/bottom ref could be
useful if flags is kept as-is.

I am hoping to find some time next week to revisit hantro interlaced
and refine rkvdec interlaced support.
