kernel side:
kernel uAPI example: https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/11/12/487
it is required as ffmpeg is conusmer & will never - even look - at code using private kernel API.
So far public are: mpg2, h264, vp8. very soon will be vp9 & hevc  

ffmpeg side:
h264 example https://patchwork.ffmpeg.org/project/ffmpeg/list/?series=2898
Jonas is currently much less active (covid or new work?)

v4l2_request hw decode is official committed long-tern strategy for linux kernel hw.accell access on embedded/SoC ecosystem.
so - from future point of view - it is rather question of _when?_ ffmpeg will officially support it - not question of _will support?_


I see there is mood not going with v4l2_request code at the moment.

No problem - we can hold this now and see in future....
