>+The Hantro video decoder driver implements the following driver-specific controls:
>+
>+``V4L2_CID_HANTRO_HEVC_SLICE_HEADER_SKIP (integer)``
>+    Specifies to Hantro HEVC video decoder driver the number of data (in bits) to
>+    skip in the slice segment header.
>+    If non-IDR, the bits to be skipped go from syntax element "pic_output_flag"
>+    to before syntax element "slice_temporal_mvp_enabled_flag".

What happens if it is a dependant_slice_segement or
output_flag_present_flag?  Those flags are all dependant on
dependant_slice_segement being false.  I'm guessing 0 but it maybe
should be documented.
Likewise if output_flag_present_flag is false pic_output_flag will not
be coded, so maybe express it as "after slice_type" rather than "before
pic_output_flag"?
