Subject: [PATCH] atmel_lcdfb: LCDC startup fix

From: Anti Sullin <>

This patch adds an additional loop, that delays turning off the DMA 
until the LCDC core has been turned off. This prevents the picture 
to be shifted some random length when the kernel re-initializes
the LCDC.

Without this patch, the LCDC keeps running for some small time 
after the PWRCON:LCD_PWR has been cleared ; the FIFO suffers 
an underrun and on re-starting the LCDC the FIFO data 
stays shifted.
This behavior has been seen and fixed on AT91SAM9261-EK and 
two custom AT91SAM9261 boards, all of them having different 
LCD panels.

Thanks a lot to Anti Sullin for submitting this patch (long 
time ago).
