Nice catch! However, I'm a bit worried about blocking nature of this solution.
What about shadowing scaler registers and applying them in "finish_irq"
handler? You see, VI scaler can in some cases consume almost all time between
two VSync events. That issue came up on A64 mixer1 with downscaling 4K videos
in real time. I imagine that this solution might block for too long in this
case.

Check VI coarse scaling code:

sun8i_vi_layer.c#L144

Newly introduced drm_warn() should be used here.
