Even though it's a bit better now on my A33 board and I don't have the
white stripes on the bottom of the display, there's still some
flickering with your patches applied.

Bisecting it seems to point at that patch, but reverting it doesn't
make the issue go away, so it's not really clear which one exactly is
at fault.

So, just like I asked in your v4, twice,
