I tested this case, and found a glitch which suggests the last 4 bytes are ignored:

https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-next/uploads/cfb59e3832431aaa3a69549455502568/image.png

That would be taken care of rounding up towards a number decided at runtime, like:

divisor = 8 >> (mbus->height % 2);

How best to go about this? I can see in the file imx-media-capture.c that there the video device lives in struct capture_priv.vdev.vfd. Would that be the right place to query about the underlying hardware?

Then the following functions would gain a new "small_divisor" parameter:
- imx_media_mbus_fmt_to_pix_fmt (a GPL symbol)
- imx_media_mbus_fmt_to_ipu_image (a GPL symbol)
- __capture_try_fmt

Those would have to extract the device type from struct capture_priv:
- __capture_legacy_try_fmt
- capture_try_fmt_vid_cap
- capture_s_fmt_vid_cap
- capture_init_format

Dorota
