Ok.

I don't use devmem2. Is 'readback' information accurate or is it
always what's been written? Because when you write 0x33 to 0xFFFFECBC,
0x33 is read back, but just after that, when you read it again it's 0.

It's configurable on a per-layer basis through the SIF bit in
LCDC_<layer>CFG0. The driver tries to dispatch the load on those 2 AHB
masters [1].

This, I don't know. I guess all of them can be used.
