If the H3 display block is done the same way than the A10 (and later)
one on this aspect, then the TCON has two channels with two different
streaming (or functional, you pick the name) clocks. The channel 0 is
usually used for RGB, the channel 1 for HDMI, composite and VGA.

Maybe they just added different bus gates for those two different
channels, and moved HDMI to the channel 0.

Anyway, that can always be changed later on if we have more clue on
what's going on.
