Here is a new version of the H264 decoding support in the cedrus

As you might already know, the cedrus driver relies on the Request
API, and is a reverse engineered driver for the video decoding engine
found on the Allwinner SoCs.

This work has been possible thanks to the work done by the people
behind libvdpau-sunxi found here:

I've tested the various ABI using this gdb script:

And this test script:

The application compiled is quite trivial:

The output is:
arm:	builds/arm-test-v4l2-h264-structures
	SHA1: fd15b30328765c2caac877e8ea8452c829b2b1d8
x86:	builds/x86-test-v4l2-h264-structures
	SHA1: fd15b30328765c2caac877e8ea8452c829b2b1d8
x64:	builds/x64-test-v4l2-h264-structures
	SHA1: fd15b30328765c2caac877e8ea8452c829b2b1d8
arm64:	builds/arm64-test-v4l2-h264-structures
	SHA1: fd15b30328765c2caac877e8ea8452c829b2b1d8

Let me know if there's any flaw using that test setup, or if you have
any comments on the patches.


Changes from v5:
  - Made the references to the H264 spec more explicit
  - Added a flag for the IDR pic
  - Fixed typos
  - Rebased on v5.1-rc1

Changes from v4:
  - Changed the luma and chroma weight and offset from s8 to s16
  - Adjusted chroma and luma denominators masks in the driver
  - Casted the luma and chroma offset to prevent an overflow
  - ALways write the interrupt status register
  - Fix a bug in the sram write routine that would write something even if
    the length was 0
  - Make the scaling lists mandatory
  - Made the reference list order explicit in the documentation
  - Made the fact that the slice structure can be an array
  - Renamed the slice format to V4L2_PIX_FMT_H264_SLICE_RAW
  - Rebased on Hans' tag br-v5.1s

Changes from v3:
  - Reintroduced long term reference flag and documented it
  - Reintroduced ref_pic_list_p0/b0/b1 and documented it
  - Documented the DPB flags
  - Treat the scaling matrix as optional in the driver, as documented
  - Free the neighbor buffer
  - Increase the control IDs by a large margin to be safe of collisions
  - Reorder the fields documentation according to the structure layout
  - Change the tag documentation by the timestamp
  - Convert the sram array to size_t
  - Simplify the buffer retrieval from timestamp
  - Rebase

Changes from v2:
  - Simplified _cedrus_write_ref_list as suggested by Jernej
  - Set whether the frame is used as reference using nal_ref_idc
  - Respect chroma_format_idc
  - Fixes for the scaling list and prediction tables
  - Wrote the documentation for the flags
  - Added a bunch of defines to the driver bit fields
  - Reworded the controls and data format descriptions as suggested
    by Hans
  - Reworked the controls' structure field size to avoid padding
  - Removed the long term reference flag
  - Reintroduced the neighbor info buffer
  - Removed the ref_pic_list_p0/b0/b1 arrays that are redundant with the
    one in the DPB
  - used the timestamps instead of tags
  - Rebased on 5.0-rc1

Changes from v1:
  - Rebased on 4.20
  - Did the documentation for the userspace API
  - Used the tags instead of buffer IDs
  - Added a comment to explain why we still needed the swdec trigger
  - Reworked the MV col buffer in order to have one slot per frame
  - Removed the unused neighbor info buffer
  - Made sure to have the same structure offset and alignments across
    32 bits and 64 bits architecture
