Setting primary plane size less than crtc breaks composition. Also
shifting top left corner also breaks it.

I am using Android userspace and drm_hwcomposer HAL.

@Jernej, you've said that you observed similar issue. Could you share
what userspace have you used?

You can put primary plane to any part of the screen and make it as
small as 8x8 (according to the datasheet) . Background would be filled
with black color, that is default, but it also could be overridden by
setting corresponding registers.
