Isn't .buf_init and .buf_cleanup callbacks provided by struct vb2_ops meant 
for exactly that?

Related, but different topic. I managed to fix 10-bit HEVC support on H6, but 
when working in 8-bit mode, capture buffers have to be big enough to hold 
normal NV12 decoded image plus extra buffer for 2 bits of each pixel. VPU 
accepts only offset from destination buffer for this extra buffer instead of full 
address. How we will handle that? Override sizeimage when allocating? But 
there we don't have information if it's 10-bit video or not. As you can see, 
I'm not a fan of overallocating.

I suspect we will have even bigger issues when decoding 10-bit HEVC video in 
P010 format, which is the only 10-bit YUV format useable by DRM driver (not 
implemented yet). From what I know till now, VPU needs aforementioned 8-bit+2-
bit buffers (for decoding) and another one in which it rearranges samples in 
P010 format. But that has to be confirmed first.

Best regards,
Jernej
