There is no native NV12 support, apart form some special-case handling
when using them as textures. For NV12, you would want to create two
separate BOs - one with GBM_FORMAT_R8 (luma/Y), and one with
GBM_FORMAT_RG88 (chroma/UV), and fill those like you would fill the
two planes of a native NV12 surface. They can then be combined and
sent to the compositor as two planes of a single NV12 image.
