s5p-mfc: Don't try to resubmit VP8 bitstream buffer for decode.
Currently, for formats that are not H264, MFC driver will check the consumed stream size returned by the firmware and, based on that, will try to decide whether the bitstream buffer contained more than one frame. If the size of the buffer is larger than the consumed stream, it assumes that there are more frames in the buffer and that the buffer should be resubmitted for decode. This rarely works though and actually introduces problems, because: - v7 firmware will always return consumed stream size equal to whatever the driver passed to it when running decode (which is the size of the whole buffer), which means we will never try to resubmit, because the firmware will always tell us that it consumed all the data we passed to it; - v6 firmware will return the number of consumed bytes, but will not include the padding ("stuffing") bytes that are allowed after the frame in VP8. Since there is no way of figuring out how many of those bytes follow the frame without getting the frame size from IVF headers (or somewhere else, but not from the stream itself), the driver tries to guess that padding size is not larger than 4 bytes, which is not always true; The only way to make it work is to queue only one frame per buffer from userspace and the check in the kernel is useless and wrong for VP8. So adding VP8 also along with H264 to disallow re-submitting of buffer back to hardware for decode.
