thanks carlos!

my analysis suggested that my team should reproduce these chunks of code
which are for samsung exynos:


to oversimplify greatly: we want to port 'exynos_video_decode_accelerator'
to a new 'imx_video_decode_accelerator'. in this module we would make use
of the same direct texture techniques as eglvivsink from gstreamer-imx.

this is definitely not the route you have taken, from what I can tell. is
this something you considered and steered away from? have you examined
these code paths at all? there are a few other special modules besides
exynos too.

i might be wrong, but it could be the best chance of getting something
upstreamed would be do it "like everyone else" (i.e. samsung). but i'm
probably thinking *way* too far ahead here.
