Rob Herring also aked be about this, and I'll copy here the reply, with
explanations:

Indeed, this limitation is actually due to bandwidth limitation, but
the problem is that this limitation comes on i.MX8M (known as mScale
850D), where the memory bandwidth cannot support: GPU/VPU workload in
the same time with both DCSS driving 4k@60 and eLCDIF driving 1080p@60.
Since eLCDIF is a secondary display we though to add the posibility to
limit it's bandwidth by limiting the resolution.
If you say that more details are needed, I can add them in the
description.
