Indeed, same here, although I only tested on Linux host.

I've got confirmation from the device developers that the register in
question is indeed a read only register, so I'll post a patch.
However, it would be good if you could confirm that the fbdev problem
your patch fixed works also without the write to
SVGA_REG_BUTES_PER_LINE

Thanks,
Thomas
