Thanks for being willing to review this.

Thanks for the clarification. It wasn't obvious to me, because in
some instances the PP looked like it was there and sometimes not
there. I'll remove the postproc stuff.

Thanks for the tip.

For what it's worth the G1 seems to repond cleanly to the inquiries
The G2 throws some splat when I run v4l2-compliance, but I am still

The H1 encoder seems to hang the system when I run v4l2-compliance on
it when H1 is set up as I submitted the patch. I tried dropping all
the encoder formats except the JPEG format, and it doesn't hang any
more, but it also doesn't really do anything.
The datasheet only references VPU_H1 as supporting VP8 and H.264, so I
am not sure JPEG is even supported.
The log from v4l2-compliance on the H1 with everything except the JPEG
removed looks like:

I want to install Gstreamer, but I don't have functioning DSI video,
so I am not entirely sure how I will go about testing the decoders
except by using fakesink
If the G1 ends up working with some of the newer Gstreamer stuff, I
might just submit a formal patch to just enable the G1 for now.
