Actually, I think that's an outstanding bug in v4l-utils. It doesn't
correctly handle the m2m case with respect to scaling. I think. I'll
look into this a bit more.

This ioctl makes no sense for JPEG codecs, and in fact jpeg drivers like
s5p-jpeg or mtk-jpeg do not implement this. This sounds like a gstreamer bug.
Nicolas, do you know anything about this?

vim2m. Also drivers/media/platform/mtk-jpeg/ (although I'm not sure when
it was last tested with v4l2-compliance, so it might be a bit out of date).
