Oh, one last thing I think we need to figure out: I'm using TIM2_CLKSEL,
which seems to be necessary on this platform.  My understanding is that
this means that the pixel clock is divided from clcdclk instead of
apb_pclk.  Do you agree?  The fbdev driver is using
clk_get(&fb->dev->dev, NULL) and not TIM2_CLKSEL, which I'm surprised by
because I would have thought that would give us the first clock from the
DT node (also clcdclk).
