Yeah, that was my plan. I'd definitely expect some formats in V4L2
while not supported by DRM, or the other way around.

That makes sense

Yeah, my secret plan is to have eventually a single fourcc (or even
#define) for both DRM and v4l2 for any new format. But don't tell
anyone :)

Great, I'll respin this then.
