With patch that switches by default to 2xsystem clock for pixel clock, if
using 133MHz system clock (as you specified in the patch I proposed for
revert here) that would go, without this patch at 53MHz if 65MHz is
requested. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I see, but from my point of view, the upper layers should decide what
frequency settings should be done on the LCD controller and not let this at
the driver's latitude.

I have 2 use cases:
1/ system clock = 200MHz and requested pixel clock (mode_rate) ~71MHz. With
the reverted patch the resulted computed pixel clock would be 80MHz.
Previously it was at 66MHz
2/ system clock = 133MHz and the requested pixel clock (mode_rate) 60MHz.
With the reverted patch the computed pixel clock would be 66MHz.

I took into account the patch that uses by default 2xsystem clock as pixel
clock (and this was on a system that supported it).

It's based on the use cases I mentioned above.

I see, but, FMPOV, you have to take into account that some of the devices
don't support it.

Thank you,
