I'm getting the feeling that TCON-TOP / TVE-TOP is the glue layer that
binds everything together, and provides signal routing, kind of like
DE-TOP on A64. So the signal mux controls that were originally found
in TCON0 and TVE0 were moved out.

The driver needs to know about that, but the graph about doesn't make
much sense directly. Without looking at the manual, I understand it to
likely be one mux between the mixers and TCONs, and one between the
TCON-TVs and HDMI. Would it make more sense to just have the graph
connections between the muxed components, and remove TCON-TOP from
it, like we had in the past? A phandle could be used to reference
the TCON-TOP for mux controls, in addition to the clocks and resets.

For TVE, we would need something to represent each of the output pins,
so the device tree can actually describe what kind of signal, be it
each component of RGB/YUV or composite video, is wanted on each pin,
if any. This is also needed on the A20 for the Cubietruck, so we can
describe which pins are tied to the VGA connector, and which one does
R, G, or B.
