Right, in version 3 that you are working with, no v4l2-compliance fixes were
in yet. A lot of the compliance errors are fixed, please look in latest
imx-media-staging-md-wip at

I believe this has been fixed in imx-media-staging-md-wip as well,
see imx-media-capture.c:capture_enum_fmt_vid_cap()

Camif subdev is gone, replaced with a set of exported functions
that allow attaching a capture device (and v4l2 interface) to a
calling subdev's output pad. See imx-media-capture.c.

The subdev's capture device interface is the only subdev that
can request a planar format from imx_media_enum_format().
All the others now (the non-device node pads), request only RGB
or packed YUV, or the IPU internal formats for IPU internal connections,
and these are the first entries in the table. The planar formats all are at
the end, which can only be enumerated by the capture device interfaces.
