Yes, functional constraint in caused by divider value.

clock output rate can defined for both modes as follows,

p_clk (clock output rate) = lcd_clk (input clock rate) / div,

to configure "div", we have r/w 8 bits, so div values can
range from 0-255,

And IP spec says value "0" and "1" should not be written, in
raster mode. Further it says if in LIDD mode it can have values
from 0-255, but effect of writing "0" is same as "1".

Effect of divider value on output rate is in the same way for
both modes as per above expression (except for writing "0" in
LIDD mode).

The driver supports only raster mode.


Note: link to trm has been mentioned in the earlier reply.
