And the reason why I say it's a "benign" off-by-one (which is actually off-by-four-bytes)
issue is because of this piece of code:

drivers/media/platform/qcom/venus/hfi_venus.c:
 864 static int venus_sys_set_idle_message(struct venus_hfi_device *hdev,
 865                                       bool enable)
 866 {
 867         struct hfi_sys_set_property_pkt *pkt;
 868         u8 packet[IFACEQ_VAR_SMALL_PKT_SIZE];
 869         int ret;
 870
 871         if (!enable)
 872                 return 0;
 873
 874         pkt = (struct hfi_sys_set_property_pkt *)packet;
 875
 876         pkt_sys_idle_indicator(pkt, enable);
 877
 878         ret = venus_iface_cmdq_write(hdev, pkt, false);
 879         if (ret)
 880                 return ret;
 881
 882         return 0;
 883 }

IFACEQ_VAR_SMALL_PKT_SIZE at line 868 is of size 100, which is greater than

sizeof(*pkt) + sizeof(*hfi) + sizeof(u32); in the original code:

drivers/media/platform/qcom/venus/hfi_cmds.c:
  26 void pkt_sys_idle_indicator(struct hfi_sys_set_property_pkt *pkt, u32 enable)
  27 {
  28         struct hfi_enable *hfi = (struct hfi_enable *)&pkt->data[1];
  29
  30         pkt->hdr.size = sizeof(*pkt) + sizeof(*hfi) + sizeof(u32);
  31         pkt->hdr.pkt_type = HFI_CMD_SYS_SET_PROPERTY;
  32         pkt->num_properties = 1;
  33         pkt->data[0] = HFI_PROPERTY_SYS_IDLE_INDICATOR;
  34         hfi->enable = enable;
  35 }
