FBC is disabled through the chicken bits, so I am really curious to know
where the power saving is coming from. I just want to verify that we have
not made a fundamental mistake in our FBC logic that is consuming more
power than is necessary across all platforms.
In terms of code clarity, we should leave a note as to why we explicitly
disable fbc, e.g.: .has_fbc = 0, /* hardware support is buggy */
