It isn't - the problem is that the results are misleading. The
VIDIOC_REQBUFS depends on the GET_FMT test succeeding, so it knows
which buffer formats are valid.

Since the GET_FMT test fails due to the colorspace issue, it decides
that it can't trust the format, so it ends up with no formats to test.
This causes the "VIDIOC_REQBUFS/CREATE_BUFS/QUERYBUF" test to pass,
but then it moves on to testing "VIDIOC_EXPBUF" with no available
buffers, which then fails.

Fixing GET_FMT (which I've done locally) to return proper colorspace
information results in GET_FMT passing, and also solves the EXPBUF
problem too.
