I've clarified the commit message.

Almost: we're comparing the number of formats inside the format-blob
container, to the number of formats from drmModeGetPlane. Any mismatch
between them is a kernel bug, as it's an invariant of the API that the
two must be equal. Nothing we can do about it if so, but given the
result would be overwriting random bits from the heap, and that quite
a few driver developers use Weston as a test, leaving the assert in
I'm not hugely attached to it though, so even though I've left it in
for v17, do feel free to remove it when pushing.

I've fixed up the references to 'IN_MODIFIERS' (sic: IN_FORMAT) whilst here.
