But the behavior of A64 compatible will change from double
PLL to single PLL, because the A64 HDMI PHY is proven
to have no double PLL.

Should I then change the A64 compatible behavior and import R40 compatible at the same time?

In addition maybe I can just drop A64 compatible, and let A64
use H3 one. Then I will add a R40 compatible to catch
dual PLL behavior.
