7 sec stall + GPU HANG when decoding an HEVC stream with missing references.


In Linux, when decoding a HEVC stream with missing references, MFXVideoDECODE_DecodeFrameAsync eventually fails with MFX_ERR_GPU_HANG, after having previously stalled for ~7 seconds with (MFX_WRN_DEVICE_BUSY). The media-driver call vaSyncSurface is responsible for this abnormal delay.

CPU model: 12th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-1235U (also reproduced on a i7 TigerLake Cpu/Gpu)
OS: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
Kernel: 5.18.0-051800-generic
OneVPL runtime 2022Q3: 22.5.4

Repro command line using the sample_decode app:
sample_decode h265 -i ./missing_refs.h265 -o /dev/null
