The Request API is currently used and specified as part of the
Memory-to-memory Stateless Video Decoder Interface [1].

This can now be considered as non-experimental and stable, given
the decoder API has been used by products since a couple years,
supported by several drivers and userspace frameworks,

Hi Ezequiel,

Thank you for the patch.

This effectively aligns the kernel with the de facto situation, so
