How about this:

----------------------
Maximum size in bytes required for image data in this plane,
set by the driver. When the image consists of variable length
compressed data this is the number of bytes required by the
codec to support the worst-case compression scenario.

For uncompressed images the driver will set the value. For
variable length compressed data clients are allowed to set
the sizeimage field, but the driver may ignore it and set the
value itself, or it may modify the provided value based on alignment
requirements or minimum/maximum size requirements. If the client wants
to leave this to the driver, then it should set sizeimage to 0.
-----------------------

I think this is more precise, esp. the last bit that clients can set
it to 0 to have the driver provide the value is important in my view.
