That would work. One more alternative (just want to make sure we've
evaluated all options) is to use the autorefresh feature. How I would
put it simply, is that autorefresh turns a command mode panel into a
video mode panel. If autorefresh is enabled, the MDP will
automatically send a frame to the panel every time the panel invokes
the TE signal. I'm pretty sure this will automatically trigger the
PP_DONE irq, so essentially PP_DONE is now analogous to vsync. The
downside is that the START trigger and autorefresh are basically
mutually exclusive. I see the autorefresh config register in MDP 1.0,
so it would be applicable to all platforms supported by the mdp5
driver.
