It seems Hans splitted the documentation and so this should now
go to Documentation/media/uapi/v4l/ext-ctrls-codec.rst.

I haven't seen any objections to renaming this to V4L2_PIX_FMT_H264_SLICE_RAW,
so if you could be so kind to push v5 with this rename (or similar), and also
rebasing to the master branch, I could then submit the H264 decoder support for
the Rockchip VPU.

There is still the question brought up by Tomasz, about moving this pixel format
to a non-public header. Perhaps someone has some ideas on this?

Thanks a lot!
Ezequiel
