  Reference frame compression is a feature added in G2 decoder to compress
frame buffers so that the bandwidth of storing/loading reference frames
can be reduced, especially when the resolution of decoded stream is of
high definition.

The impact of compressed frames is confirmed when using perf to monitor
the number of memory accesses with or without compression feature.
The following command
perf stat -a -e imx8_ddr0/cycles/,imx8_ddr0/read-cycles/,imx8_ddr0/write-cycles/ gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=Jockey_3840x2160_120fps_420_8bit_HEVC_RAW.hevc ! queue ! h265parse ! v4l2slh265dec ! fakesink

give us these results
without compression feature:
Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

        1711300345      imx8_ddr0/cycles/
         892207924      imx8_ddr0/read-cycles/
        1291785864      imx8_ddr0/write-cycles/

      13.760048353 seconds time elapsed

with compression feature:
Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

         274526799      imx8_ddr0/cycles/
         453120194      imx8_ddr0/read-cycles/
         833391434      imx8_ddr0/write-cycles/

      18.257831534 seconds time elapsed

As expected the number of read/write cycles are really lower when compression
is used.

Since storing compression data requires more memory a module
parameter named 'hevc_use_compression' is used to enable/disable
this feature and, by default, compression isn't used.

Enabling compression feature means that decoder output frames
are stored with a specific compression pixel format. Since this
pixel format is unknown, this patch restrain compression feature
usage to the cases where post-processor pixels formats (NV12 or NV15)
are selected by the applications.

Fluster compliance HEVC test suite score is still 141/147 after this patch.

On my own testing the duration remained the same. Perhaps you had something else
running during your test ? I would suggest to always runs multiple time such a
test before sharing to avoid snapshot effect and possibly wrong interpretation.

Nicolas

Perhaps a KConfig to change the default ?

You need to force the decoder to produce NV12 to see the effect of patch.
I will update the test command line in the commit message.

That will be in v2
