Kerndeint supports yuy2, which is 422.
Also, if you add -v then you'll see if there are additional conversions:
Trying filter chain: kerndeint vo
For example means no conversion, otherwise there would be a scale filter
in there.
In addition even without -v, the scaler should tell you what it does,
[swscaler @ 0x7f6863203000]bicubic scaler, from yuv420p to yuyv422 using MMXEXT
-vf format=yuy2,kerndeint
should probably work for 422 kerndeint.
