I a trying to be too clever. :-)

Here is the comment I will add to the next revision:

/*
* The ST7586 controller has an unusual pixel format where 2bpp
grayscale is
* packed 3 pixels per byte with the first two pixels using 3 bits and
the 3rd
* pixel using only 2 bits.
*
* | D7 | D6 | D5 || D1 | D0 || 2bpp |
* | (D4) | (D3) | (D2) || | || GRAY |
* +------+------+------++------+------++------+
* | 1 | 1 | 1 || 1 | 1 || 0 0 | black
* | 1 | 0 | 0 || 1 | 0 || 0 1 | dark gray
* | 0 | 1 | 0 || 0 | 1 || 1 0 | light gray
* | 0 | 0 | 0 || 0 | 0 || 1 1 | white
*/


As you can see, in the controller DRAM 1's are black and 0's are white,
but in the kernel, it is the opposite. Also, if you look at the truth
table, you can see that the extra 3rd bit has the pattern if D7 == 0 or
D6 == 0 then D5 is zero.

I suppose it could be better to do this with a lookup table:

static const u8 st7586_lookup[] = { 0x7, 0x4, 0x2, 0x0 };

...

for (y = clip->y1; y < clip->y2; y++) {
for (x = clip->x1; x < clip->x2; x += 3) {
val = st7586_lookup[*src++ >> 6] << 5;
val |= st7586_lookup[*src++ >> 6] << 2;
val |= st7586_lookup[*src++ >> 6] >> 1;
*dst++ = val;
}
}
