Subject: [PATCH v3] uvc_video: move clock_decode and stats_decode to the end of decode_start
Date: Mon, 18 Mar 2024 10:27:28 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

When the uvc request will get parsed by uvc_video_decode_start it will
leave the function with -EAGAIN to be restarted on the next frame. While
the first wrong parse the statistics will already be updated with

One value e.g. is the error_count, which therefor will be incremented
twice in case the fid has changed on the way. This patch fixes the
unnecessary extra parsing by moving the decode functions to the
end of decode_start, when it is save to really parse the data.

Signed-off-by: Michael Grzeschik <>
Changes in v3:
- Moved the clock_decode and stat_decode to end of function as suggested by Ricardo Ribalda
- Link to v2:

Changes in v2:
- Moved the EAGAIN bailout after the sequence handling as mentioned by Ricardo Ribalda
- Link to v1:
