To be honest I'm not sure if I have the full picture. In the use case
I'm trying there is a hardware mechanism to store the data and send
the infoframe through a "Packet Send Control Register".

I don't have any inconvenient to change, are the following names more
canonical ?

HDMI_MPEG_UNKNOWN_FRAME = 0x00,
HDMI_MPEG_I_FRAME = 0x01,
HDMI_MPEG_B_FRAME = 0x02,
HDMI_MPEG_P_FRAME = 0x03,

Ok.

Ok.

I will send v2 after receiving your feedback again.
