Currently no, the only driver that infers anything for legacy is i915.
Proposed amdgpu modifier patches don't work like that, but I think Bas
is working on adding the modifier inference at addfb time for legacy
userspace.

Yeah this is why I want to lock this all down, since effective
modifiers that change for a drm_fb object which is supposed to have
all invariant metadata just isn't great uapi.
