[MacOS] Top of Game View is black when “Use display in HDR mode” is enabled and "Color Space" is set to “Linear" with Dark Theme



How to reproduce:
1. Open attached project “Case_1285015”
2. Open the Game View window
3. Observe the top part of the window

Expected results: The top of the window has the same colour scheme as the rest of the Editor
Actual result: The top of the window is completely black, except for the text on it

Reproducible with: 2020.1.10f1, 2020.2.0b8, 2021.1.0a1
Not reproducible with: 2018.4.18f1, 2019.4.13f1 ("Use display in HDR mode" not available in Player Settings)

1. Not reproducible on Windows
2. Not reproducible with the Light Editor Theme (to change it go to Preferences -> General -> Editor Theme)
3. Switching from Gamma colour space Linear affects the colour scheme of the entire Editor (Both Light theme and Dark theme)
4. Setting "Swap Chain Bit Depth" under "Use display in HDR mode" to "Bit Depth 16" makes the entire Editor darker, however, the top of the Game View is no longer completely black

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2021.1):

    Fixed in: 2021.2.0a1

    1. The top of Game View (toolbar) is no longer completely black and should have the same color as the rest of the editor.
    2. The letterboxing area and Stats panel in Game View will remain black and are not addressed in this fix.
    3. When the Game View window is docked and the Game View content gets stretched to the top toolbar, a bright "stripe" of several pixels high would be visible. This is a known issue in this fix and we decided to leave it be for the moment.
    4. Regarding "Switching from Gamma colour space Linear affects the colour scheme of the entire Editor", this fix does not address this issue.

    Not sure why this was marked as fixed since there are still multiple reports of the issue throughout the early releases of 2021.2:

    I can also confirm this is still an issue on 2021.3.0f1 LTS.

    Any chance this gets backported to 2020 LTS as this makes the editor unusable?
