Hi Robin,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes, As you said, now LS1028A only supports 4 modes, and we use three clocks to support
all four modes. In fact, this was really the point.

However, we can only enable one mode to meet the check statement in this place.

For example, If user has a 1080p monitor, we must be set the pixel fixed-clock to 148.5MHz.
if user want to choice 4k monitor, we also to be change the pixel fixed-clock to 594MHz in
DT node. In reality, We have no way of knowing what kind of monitor the user wants. Right?

Moreover, user cannot to change screen resolution in this case, I don't think this place is
reasonable. we need to supporting Ubuntu , Wayland and other embedded GU, so we need
to switch the resolutions.

Maybe it's that most android device used, and android system always only need one
resolution.

Best Regards,
Wen
