DA850 supports both mDDR and DDR2, at slightly different speeds. So
memory bandwidth limitation is also board specific. This should probably
move to board file.

But I would like to know why using max-pixelclock is not good enough.
Have experiments shown that LCDC on DA850 LCDK underflows even if pixel
clock is below the datasheet recommendation?

Thanks,
Sekhar
