I think the hardware is weird enough that we should have detailed
documentation to the exact expectation for this control, i.e. detailing
exactly what syntax elements userspace is expected to pass the distance.

Maybe documenting this somewhere in Documentation/.../media/something,
and then linking that in the kernel-doc comment for hantro_hevc_extra_decode_params.
