The controller interprets all transfers to be register accesses. It is
not possible to just send the sequence '0x0a 0x0b 0x0c' as three byte
transfers, the controller expects an address for each byte and
(supposedly) sends it over the wire, which typically isn't what you
want.

Also the 8-byte reads only seem to be supported in certain
configurations ("when the DWC_HDMI_TX_20 parameter is enabled").
