Sure.

At the moment, the only supported media bus format on the source pad of
the debayer subdevice is the RGB888_1X24.

The mbus format of the source pad of the debayer ultimately determines the
pixelformat that is streamed on /dev/video3, since:
* The mbus formats of the links on the topology have to match for the
streaming to be possible, and [1] shows that the source pad of the
debayer links to the sink of the scaler.
* The scaler uses the same mbus format on sink and source.
* The source pad of the scaler is linked to the /dev/video3 Capture.

That said, there isn't a GBR pixelformat, so it uses the RGB pixelformat.

So what this patch series enables:
* Setting debayer and scaler subdevices to use GBR and BGR mbus formats.
* Stream video using the BGR pixelformat from /dev/video3.

By enabling these, it makes it possible to use vimc to emulate hardware that
uses GBR or BGR mbus formats internally or that streams using the BGR
pixelformat.

Regards,
Nícolas
