I needed to acquire mjpeg from a v4l2 uvc webcam in a Raspberry pi,                                             
and I saw mmaldec lacked mjpeg and also was doing an unnecessary copy.                                          
I used two patches I found in the mailing list archives to enable mjpeg                                         
mmaldec and then wrote one that avoids the copy. It works fine for me but                                       
I have not run 'fate' yet. I'm in a cross-building situation and I have                                         
yet to learn how that works.                                                                                    
In a Raspberry Pi 1 Model B now it can 640x480 30fps mjpeg->h264_omx with                                       
25% of cpu (as "top" shows).                                                                                    
Before these three patches, 640x480 YUY2->h264_omx could do only 20fps and                                      
"top" showed 50% of cpu.                                                                                        
A Raspberry Pi 2 can do easily 30fps 1280x720 mjpeg->h264_omx as well.                                          
It'd be a lot easier for me if these patches were upstream so I'm                                               
interested in the code getting in. I'm new in ffmpeg so I may have missed                                       
customary details. I also thank the help #ffmpeg-devel that made my patch                                       
(3rd) simpler than I originally thought.
