1	SH7760/SH7763 integrated LCDC Framebuffer driver
2	================================================
3	
4	0. Overview
5	-----------
6	The SH7760/SH7763 have an integrated LCD Display controller (LCDC) which
7	supports (in theory) resolutions ranging from 1x1 to 1024x1024,
8	with color depths ranging from 1 to 16 bits, on STN, DSTN and TFT Panels.
9	
10	Caveats:
11	* Framebuffer memory must be a large chunk allocated at the top
12	  of Area3 (HW requirement). Because of this requirement you should NOT
13	  make the driver a module since at runtime it may become impossible to
14	  get a large enough contiguous chunk of memory.
15	
16	* The driver does not support changing resolution while loaded
17	  (displays aren't hotpluggable anyway)
18	
19	* Heavy flickering may be observed
20	  a) if you're using 15/16bit color modes at >= 640x480 px resolutions,
21	  b) during PCMCIA (or any other slow bus) activity.
22	
23	* Rotation works only 90degress clockwise, and only if horizontal
24	  resolution is <= 320 pixels.

30	1. Platform setup
31	-----------------
32	SH7760:
33	 Video data is fetched via the DMABRG DMA engine, so you have to
34	 configure the SH DMAC for DMABRG mode (write 0x94808080 to the
35	 DMARSRA register somewhere at boot).
36	
37	 PFC registers PCCR and PCDR must be set to peripheral mode.
38	 (write zeros to both).
39	
40	The driver does NOT do the above for you since board setup is, well, job
41	of the board setup code.
42	
43	2. Panel definitions
44	--------------------
45	The LCDC must explicitly be told about the type of LCD panel
46	attached.  Data must be wrapped in a "struct sh7760fb_platdata" and
47	passed to the driver as platform_data.
48	
49	Suggest you take a closer look at the SH7760 Manual, Section 30.
50	(http://documentation.renesas.com/eng/products/mpumcu/e602291_sh7760.pdf)

52	The following code illustrates what needs to be done to
53	get the framebuffer working on a 640x480 TFT:
