That sounds like a hack.  The tda998x driver doesn't set the format
because it pre-dates the addition of this information in the display
info structure, and none of its current users require that information.

As you're the first to require it, rather than working around the
driver by adding stuff to DT, it would be much better to improve the
driver by adding this information.

Thanks.
