If you're really bored, could we make everyone even more happy by exposing
format switching in the drm fbdev emulation? Only for the drivers which
have a full format list on the primary plane (gets too tricky otherwise).
And obviously only formats that have lower bpp than the one we booted with
(can't reallocate the framebuffer because fbdev).

Just as an idea, this shouldn't be too horrible amounts of work to wire
up. But ofc more than this oneliner :-)

Cheers, Daniel
