I correct my mistake first. In mt8173, mdp has already upstreamed [1].

There are many partitions in Mediatek SoC. mmsys is one of these
partition. There are many function blocks in mmsys such as OVL, RDMA,
RSZ, WROT, .... Some data routing between these blocks are fixed but
some are changeable. For application, we group them into display path
and mdp path. Clock gating register of these blocks are in the range of
0x14000000 ~ 0x14000fff. The routing control register of these blocks
are also in the range of 0x14000000 ~ 0x14000fff. So the control
function belong to mmsys partition but not belong to specific function
block would in the register range of 0x14000000 ~ 0x14000fff. I think
there could be two definition of mmsys device. One is that mmsys device
is the whole mmsys partiotion, so OVL, RDMA, ... would be sub device of
it. Another is that mmsys just control register of 0x14000000 ~
0x14000fff, so it's part of mmsys partition like OVL, RDMA, .....
Currently we define mmsys as the latter one. I've no idea how to map
mmsys into current Linux hardware category, but I think it is not just a
display device.
