That's the case case where the format is not supported by either of the
hardware blocks. For instance, requesting ARGB with tiling will fail,
although ARGB without tiling will work. It seems that modetest assumes
that modifiers only apply to YUV (in which case there are no unsupported
cases), but I think userspace might still request RGB+tiling
combinations. I don't currently see a way to report to which format the
tiling applies (thus we have to expect that it can come with any of the
supported formats).

If we get both tests (no backend support and frontend support) into one
function, we cannot detect that the format is actually unsupported and
return an error in the atomic check.

This list is not indended to reflect what the driver supports, but only
what the backend can support (to correctly select whether a
format/modifier couple should go to the frontend or backend)!

The complete list that is reported to userspace for global driver
support is sun4i_layer_formats in sun4i_layer.c.
