No, we probably don't need another set of w/h values. As for the
interaction, I propose the following:

- writeback is only attached to a connector, so the crtc_x/y/w/h are the
"input source" parameters into the writeback. Given that we put in the
writeback the content of the CRTC, I suggest we ignore x,y (consider
them to be always 0 for the writeback output).

- writeback has a framebuffer attached, so we can use the fb->w/h to
determine if we need to do any scaling of the output.

Our hardware has the ability to also write back one of the planes and
scale it during writeback, but we have no way of expressing that in DRM
via connectors, so we are going to ignore that case. The supported usecase
is for the planes to be scaled into the "composition" area which is the size
of the CRTC, and then writeback that to memory, possibly with scaling (we
officially only going to support downscaling due to external dependencies
on the memory clock that is needed for supporting upscaling).

Best regards,

Liviu
