I'm just speculating.  I suspect it's more of a latency/timing thing than
bandwidth.  If the request is not there when the LB needs it, it'll run dry.

It could and does in some cases and there's even code to check it in the
watermark setup although it probably needs a bit of tweaking for APUs. 
Unfortunately the way the drm is structured makes it hard to do a good job
since modesetting is per crtc so you only get a partial picture.  I'll talk to
the display team and see what they have to say.
