On the 32-bit SoCs (for which VPU support is not upstream yet) it has
caused screen tearing instead of shifting the image.

That was also my approach (for a not-yet-upstream patch).
Since it's affecting already supported SoCs I suggest adding
"Fixed-by: 24e0d4058eff ..." (maybe Neil can do so when he agrees and
is applying the patch).
