Yes 12b is much slower

On a 422 HQ file :
10b decoding precision :
frame= 3316 fps=280 q=-0.0 Lsize=N/A time=00:02:12.64 bitrate=N/A
bench: utime=88.741s stime=1.257s rtime=11.833s

12b decoding precision :
frame= 3316 fps=176 q=-0.0 Lsize=N/A time=00:02:12.64 bitrate=N/A
bench: utime=145.096s stime=0.769s rtime=18.894s

I don't know, how to get the "wanted" pix_fmt output using ffmpeg cli, and
I don't know, what the general "rules" of this project for multiple pix_fmt
output for the same input file.

If user option for decoding precision need to be remove,
i think 422 need to stay in 10b decoding, and 444 need to be decode in 12b.
