As a gentle reminder, Hans sent the i.MX8MQ G2 HEVC support pull request
and Benjamin just posted a series adding support for more features.

Do you think we could have the blk-ctrl support landing in v5.14?

If you work on the patches, and you happen to test the G1 and G2 on
i.MX8MM it would be great to add that too.

Meanwhile, our next steps would be to improve the HEVC V4L2 uAPI itself.

Thanks a lot!
Ezequiel
