I'm trying to work out what kind of LCD panel this is for. I assume
not the panels which would be connected to a SoC, which have a parallel
interface to a frame buffer device (LCD controller)?

If this is for these kinds of LCD panels, how are you handling the
timing required for active panels - some of which must not be powered
up without the LCD controller first being setup and enabled, and must
be powered down before the LCD controller is disabled.

I've seen this requirement with panels connected to ARM Ltd's development
boards, and also some SoCs.
