glimagesink yuy2 is bad

It's seems glimagesink is not drawing YUY2 frames nicely.

Just type this pipeline:

gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! video/x-raw,format=YUY2 ! glimagesink

See attached image.

    glcolorconvert: improve the YUY2/UYVY->RGBA conversion shader
    Don't offset the y-axis.  We only need to offset on the x-axis.
