"There can be only one!" (hdlcd) :) This is going to be a "one version only" HW part.
ARM has now switched to a new display hardware that has more features and a new name,
and work on mainlining support for that will start once I get the HDLCD driver accepted.

Juno has a set of TLX (ThinLinks) connectors on the board where an FPGA can be attached. On r1
the code running on FPGA can even participate as an AXI master with full coherency. The FPGA
has local memory that we want to share with the HDLCD to be used as a framebuffer.
