Even if the situation hasn't changed, providing context is very helpful
for new reviewers or reviewers who might need a reminder of that
situation. I for one had already forgotten the video clock context so I
had a similiar question as Jerome when I saw the NOCACHE and UNUSED

As you know, new usage of those flags is always highly scrutinized, so
providing the right context and explanation, even if it's repeating
stuff you've stated elsewhere, can help preempt any questions.

Not at all a blocker for this patch, but just curious do you have a TODO
list someplace for this driver in case others might have some time to
help you with the migration?

Yes, that's perfect.
