 Summary of the bug:
 How to reproduce:

 Decode a video stream which increases the video resolution at runtime.

 The current implementation is buggy -works depending on stream and codec
 being used- since full-reinit closes the v4l2 file descriptor and
 therefore loses important header information used by the hardware.

 Initially I assumed it to be a hardware/driver issue - the platforms used
 to test[1] had a common bug in its driver that hid the issue- but further
 analysis revealed it is just a simple bug (2 man/day to fix)

 [1] dragon board 820c: works correctly
 [2] dragon board 410c: only h263 works

 I will submit a fix in the coming weeks.

 Patches should be submitted to the ffmpeg-devel mailing list and not this
 bug tracker.
