A few comments below, though.

As a general comment it'd be really helpful if you could split your
changes into more patches than you tend to do - ideally, each patch
should have a single logical change in it which is fully described by
the commit message.  Sometimes it's not worth splitting stuff out if the
changes overlap but it does make review easier if you can.

For example, you've already split out the codec driver change but still
well as the advertised change this patch also renames the mmap() support
define and some coding style cleanups.

Random whitespace changes.

I'm not sure that the reindentation here is helpful but then the line is
so long that it's hard to do anything.  When revisiting this I'd suggest
using temporary variables to calculate the pointers passed in - that
should help a lot and I'd not expect worse code from the compiler since
the value has to be calculated and stored for passing to the function


Normally just ifdef.
