50D sRAW1 doesn't work
When I try to open sRaw1(8Mpix) in Darkroom all I get is black. when zooming in or out it shows some purple ghost image.
normal Raws(15Mpix) work ok.
No OpenCL in use.
no plugins affect the end result. But automatic exposure is calculated and seems reasonable.

Sharing some RAWS.. smaller and bigger ... easier to find out the problem.. :)

A short update on this issue. With IMG_Joulu-182141-0014.cr2 rawspeed throws an exception in ColorFilterArray::getDcrawFilter(). Because of this the opening is handed over to libraw which for some reason generates garbage. The interesting thing is, that the image is displayed correctly for half a second and then gets broken. Investigation continues

I've been poking at this. Yes, the "working" image is a JPEG embedded preview.
It turns out that Rawspeed will, in fact, open an sRaw. Instead of providing the bayer pattern to be demosaiced, it does some funny interpolation and returns 6 bytes-per-pixel RGB data. (The reason that getDcrawFilter pukes is that, with no bayer pattern, there's no color filter.) I don't know enough about the pixel pipe, but I imagine something similar to dt_iop_clip_and_zoom would be required to read it.
Or someone could just figure out what broke, that the libraw fallback doesn't work any more... I can also provide test files, if needed.

Alright. I've got the first pass at sRaw support. Only works with sRaw2 (x and y subsampling), not sRaw1 (only x subsampling). I don't know why - this might be a rawspeed issue, or I might not be using the rawspeed output correctly. I'll look.
Also, mip generation is still a little wonky. We should probably use the jpeg preview for images that haven't had any processing applied yet. This gives a green cast to thumbnails for images that haven't been processed yet. Also, occasionally they're weird colored bars instead of images.

Canon sRAW support, cut #8272. This patch replaces the previous one. It adds sRAW1 support (y-only subsampling) - the trick is to ignore the rightmost 72 pixels of the interpolated image data that rawspeed provides. It also fixes portrait-oriented images.
Also fixes the mip generation. As far as I can tell, the only remaining bug is that newly imported images' thumbnails have a green cast, because white-balance correction isn't being applied.
Testing is encouraged! Especially with other cameras' sRAWs - mine is a Canon 50D. The rawspeed code seems to indicate that there are some cameras with different sRAW formats - I'd be especially interested in knowing whether the 40D works.
