I'm not aware of any hardware supporting this color model.
As DirectFB is hardware oriented we would add the color model if there
was hardware that supports it, but not for applications that need it.

Anyway, you can add a color model in "directfb.h" (DFBSurfacePixelFormat)
and add the needed function to each ".*_PFI_.*" group in "generic.c".

A simple but dirty way would be to have your application rotate a pixel by
8 to the left after reading and back to the right before writing in a
locked surface.
