'thread-num' is used to configure the GCE thread number, which is the
channel number of gce mailbox. This property is read in
cmdq_probe()/mtk-cmdq-mailbox.c and a mailbox's channel array is
allocated according to the number.
Since the thread number may be different on different SoC, we wish it
could be configured in device tree.

You mean the new added property 'gce-subsys'?
It is used for GCE to distinguish the high 16-bit of a hardware register
address. When a client driver packets a register setting into a GCE
instruction, it uses a sub-system code and register offset instead of
the 32-bit register address.
Since sub-system code may be different on different SoC, we wish it
could be configured in device tree.

Since display driver will use GCE firstly, so we will move the
description to
'Documentation/devicetree/bindings/display/mediatek/mediatek,disp.txt'
when display driver start using the GCE driver.
Is that ok?

Will do.
