Hmm, close. It would need some additional information, possibly documented in the source

- What is the Frame Header? (the doc just says that it is different, but not what it actually is)
- What is the EOI code? Is it equal to 'FEND'? (not quite clear to me)

I think the documentation looks sufficient once those two items are addressed.

That's quite soon, so perhaps that would be the best approach. That way you also
know exactly what information is missing from the SDK User Guide, and if that is
documented, then this format can be used in the kernel.

But several of the patches in the series are independent of the new jpeg format,
so it might be useful to get those in first.
