This code was added in generic bits of GStreamer. So we just always do
CMD_STOP to drain the remaining buffers and expect EPIPE later on when
done. We can special case this, but at the same time why ? This could
be buried into the m2m helpers with a default implementation.

If you feel like this is completely wrong and userspace should do more
case-by-case code path for different CODEC handling, then someone will
have to update GStreamer accordingly. This is all moving target at the
spec just got merged.
