Video distortion with VA-API decoder when fast forwarding and rewinding [AMD / radeonsi_drv_video]
When VAAPI is enabled and H.264 videos are fast forwarded and rewound in Firefox, some distortions can appear for brief periods, but they go away as video continues playing.
Observed for example with this video:
Try using left and right arrow keys a bunch of times for fast forwarding and rewinding.

The issue was isolated to AMD only, so it's likely a Mesa bug.
