I'm working on the libswscale refactoring and Michael advised me to send
the changes to the
mailing list so that I can get more feedback about it. Thus I added the
references [1] - [7] which
are links to commits on my github fork of FFmpeg.

Last week I wrote the horizontal chroma scaling (patches [3]-[7]) code and
spent some time
ensuring it passes all tests.

As we are approaching the midterm I'll also present my scheduling plans.

   - Line pool allocator for SwsSlice
   - Implement ring buffer logic into SwsSlice
   - Implement horizontal scaling (refactor)
   - Implement vertical scaling (refactor)
   - Measure refactor performance/overhead
   - Document new code

The horizontal scaling is already working. I did some tests and initially
the overhead of the new
code is ~3% (measured only in the modified scaling code) which should be
almost 0% for total
program time execution.

For the next week (or 2) I plan to implement the line pool allocator and
the ring buffer logic.

Besides the scheduling list, with the new scaling design I think it is
possible to remove the need
for cascade SwsContexts and also work on some kind of parallelization of
the scaling code. These I should work after finishing the scheduling.
