Please see "soc: imx: add i.MX BLK-CTL support" [1] sent by Peng
a couple weeks ago. It adds the VPUMIX for i.MX8MM, so it seems
the best way forward is to follow that design, extending it for
i.MX8MQ.

That's still under discussion, but hopefully it will be sorted out for v5.15.

Speaking of i.MX8MM, I got a report that the Hantro G1 block mostly
work, but needs to be restricted to 1920x1080. If you could add a new
compatible and variant for that, maybe we can find someone to test it.

Kindly,
