I'm not sure this is needed, the input format is always the same in
your case, the panel will always take a 24 bits RGB value. What you
want to change is the encoder output format (and I guess you want that
to be meaningful to enable or not the dithering).

I guess the width would be enough, and that way we can take the
bus-width format that is already defined (but used in the v4l2
framework, not in DRM yet).
