configs/imx6-sabresd: Add VPU decoding support
Mainline kernel is able to decode video via the coda driver. Add support for it and also add some explanation on how VPU decoding can be tested with Gstreamer. Signed-off-by: Fabio Estevam <fabio.estevam@nxp.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>

# glmark2-es2-drm
+Testing video playback on the i.MX6 Sabre SD board
+==================================================
+
+As the mx6sabresd has two display outputs (LVDS and HDMI), it is necessary to
+know what is the connector that corresponds to the HDMI output.
+
+This information can be found by running:
+
+# modetest
+
+And search for the HDMI connector number. In our case it shows up as 37.
+
+In the mx6sabresd prompt run the following Gstreamer pipeline:
+
+# gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=/root/trailer_1080p_h264_mp3.avi ! avidemux ! \
+h264parse ! v4l2video1dec capture-io-mode=dmabuf ! kmssink connector-id=37 \
+name=imx-drm sync=0
+
+(The video used on this example was retrieved from:
+http://linode.boundarydevices.com/videos/trailer_1080p_h264_mp3.avi)
+
Enjoy!
