There is only one VCE engine. The rings are just front ends that feed
the single engine, similar to how there are multiple compute rings
that feed the shader array in the graphics block. Some asics have a
dual pipe VCE engine. Still single engine, but higher performance
depending on the workload. You will only see the VCE1 bit go active
if you have an asic with a dual pipe VCE engine. I think the WX5100
is a polaris board and they are only single pipe.
