True, HW doesn't have notion of primary plane. It's just one plane which is
marked as primary, but otherwise it has same capabilities as others, like x,y
coordinates, size, etc.

I observed it with DE1, but it has exactly the same issue. I noticed this
problem on Kodi (gbm version). Kodi first searches for plane capable of
displaying NV12 format (for video) and after that a plane which is capable of
displaying RGB888 format (for GUI). In DE1 case, first plane is primary and
also capable of displaying NV12 format. So when video is displayed which
doesn't cover whole screen, display output is corrupted. However, with such
fix, video playback is correct. Luc Verhaegen make equivalent fix for DE1, where
he also claims primary plane doesn't have to be same size as CRTC output:

Correct, same logic as for overlay planes applies.
