I'm confused. Isn't this the same as V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_CYCLIC_INTRA_REFRESH_MB?
Except that here you don't give the number of macroblocks but instead the number
of frames it will take to fully refresh a frame and leave it to the driver to
calculate the number of macroblocks?

If I am right, then you need to clearly document the relationship between the
two controls, and what happens if you set them both.

It seems the venus driver already supports V4L2_CID_MPEG_VIDEO_CYCLIC_INTRA_REFRESH_MB,
so why add this control as well?
