I didn't see any difference on both vc4 and sun4i, but you might be
right about this.

I didn't have much confidence in the vc4 modes since they were broken
before your patches, but maybe I should have used yours still.

The only thing sun4i requires from the new mode is the line number
anyway, which stays the same.
