Maybe i was not clear enough. That what i want to say
is that most original XFree86 4.1.0 drivers instead of
using I420 and YV12 planar format that IS supported by
hardware, they do pack it in YUYV by software, and
then puting it in overlay. So in this situation if
YUYV is used it will be faster that YV12 becouse
packing is done with MMX.
