Consider converting this to DT schema format. See
Documentation/devicetree/writing-schema.rst (.md in 5.3).

Presumably some of this is determined by the display attached. Isn't it
safe to assume the IP was configured correctly for the intended display
and you can just get this from the panel?

How are these really optional?

I would think this will effectively have to be enabled to make this
usable with DRM. I'm not sure if a "standard" userspace would use any of
the layers if all this is fixed.

Why is this needed if there's only 1?

Could just be boolean.

It might be better to define all this in terms of byte offsets. I'd
guess that is what CPU accesses are going to need.
