so ReleaseBitmap triggers the data load from the queue to
the OSD image? Can I download a description of the firmware
API somewhere?

would this be better:

remember how much has been done: add a counter to struct av7110
which is incremented in relevant places like in LoadBitmap,
BlitBitmap, SetFont, FlushText, WriteText etc. On next try,
dry-run these places (i.e. do not pass anything to the firmware)
until the counter is reached. This mechanism could be used by
OSD_Setblock, OSD_Text and others.

in case of a result other than -ERESTARTSYS (success, timeout,
other errors) the counter would be reset to 0.

or could there be a simpler solution?
