There is no reference to TCON0 in the LCDs registers (H3 V1.1 pages 428
and 435), only TCON1.

Well, I looked again in the 3.4 kernel and, for the LCD0/HDMI, there is
no clock setting for TCON1: it just receives the AHB1 clock.

This means that its gate ("bus_lcd1" or "ahb1_tcon1") must be enabled
when streaming on LCD0 or LCD1.

The role of tcon0 is not yet clear to me, but it seems that its clock
is the streaming clock for LCD1/TV, as the HDMI clock is for LCD0/HDMI.
