CODA predates the width/height=0 rule on the coded/OUTPUT queue.
It currently behaves more like a traditional mem2mem device.

When width/height is set via S_FMT(OUT) or output crop selection, the
driver will believe it and set the same (rounded up to macroblock
alignment) on the capture queue without ever having seen the SPS.

The source change event after SPS parsing that the spec requires isn't
even implemented yet.

regards
Philipp
