I just looked and the ingenic drm driver first bridge uses drm_atomic_helper_bridge_propagate_bus_fmt()
which is why this last patch doesn't work, and perhaps would be the main issue here.

Indeed, the core will loop on all the possible output formats for your HDMI monitor :
- MEDIA_BUS_FMT_UYVY8_1X16
- MEDIA_BUS_FMT_YUV8_1X24
- MEDIA_BUS_FMT_RGB888_1X24

For each of these, the dw-hdmi dw_hdmi_bridge_atomic_get_input_bus_fmts() will
return the same format + the possible CSC transformations, for example
for MEDIA_BUS_FMT_UYVY8_1X16 will return as possible inputs:
- MEDIA_BUS_FMT_UYVY8_1X16
- MEDIA_BUS_FMT_YUV8_1X24
- MEDIA_BUS_FMT_RGB888_1X24

The the core will call for each of the those the .atomic_get_input_bus_fmts of
the Ingenic DRM driver, but by using drm_atomic_helper_bridge_propagate_bus_fmt()
it basically sets a pass-through and accepts any format.

This is why MEDIA_BUS_FMT_UYVY8_1X16 is selected, but in this case the ingenic
ingenic_drm_bridge_atomic_check() would fail in the switch.

The Ingenic should implement a proper .atomic_get_input_bus_fmts returning
only the possible supported formats.

Can you check if you hit the default case in ingenic_drm_bridge_atomic_check() ?
