Yes it should and I'll send a separate patch for that but we currently
don't do anything meaningful at all if the bridge doesn't do format
negotiation and then fail setup in mxsfb_set_formats().
I think we should at least preserve the status quo (as we do with the
non bridge case in b776b0f00f24 too).
We could have a warning to spot drivers that don't do that yet and hence
the generic code returns MEDIA_BUS_FMT_FIXED.
