You're totally right and I think that more generarlly, the current code
flow is rather fragile whenever something wrong happens in our setup()
codec op. I think we should at least have that op return an error code
and properly deal with it when that occurs.

I am planning on making a cleanup series to fix that.

Before using timestamps, reference buffer index validation was done in
std_validate and now it's fully up to the driver. I wonder if it would
be feasible to bring something back in there since all stateless
drivers will face the same issue. The conditions set in
cedrus_reference_index_find seem generic enough for that, but we should
check that std_validate is not called too early, when the queue is in a
different state (and the buffer might not be dequeud or done yet).

What do you think?

Cheers,

Paul
