My point is that ARCH_LAYERSCAPE is going to be enabled in distribution 
kernels along with everything else, so you're effectively removing this 
check for all other vendors' Mali-DP implementations as well, which is 
probably not OK.

Furthermore, if LS1028A really only supports 4 specific modes as the BSP 
documentation I found claims, then surely you'd want a *more* specific 
check here, rather than no check at all?

Robin.
