Attempting to make sense of this. Allwinner's A64 BSP the following
which uses their definitions for y, vbp, vt:

    s32 start_delay = panel->lcd_vt - panel->lcd_y -10;
    u32 vfp = panel->lcd_vt - panel->lcd_y - panel->lcd_vbp;
    u32 dsi_start_delay;

    /* put start_delay to tcon. set ready sync early to dramfreq, so
set start_delay 1 */
    start_delay = 1;

    dsi_start_delay = panel->lcd_vt - vfp + start_delay;
    if (dsi_start_delay > panel->lcd_vt)
           dsi_start_delay -= panel->lcd_vt;
    if (dsi_start_delay==0)
           dsi_start_delay = 1;

This can be converted to

    dsi_start_delay = max(1, (mode->vtotal - (mode->vtotal -
mode->vdisplay - (mode->vtotal - mode->vsync_start)) + 1) %
mode->vtotal)

and simplified to

    dsi_start_delay = max(1, (mode->vtotal + mode->vdisplay -
mode->vsync_start) + 1) % mode->vtotal)

and reordered to the following

    dsi_start_delay = max(1, (mode->vtotal - (mode->vsync_start -
mode->vdisplay) + 1) % mode->vtotal)

which means total length minus front porch, or length of active
portion plus back porch plus sync.
Based on your commit message, the last derivation is what you want.
