In Gen3, when Alpha blend is enabled in the PnMR register,
depending on the initial value of the PnALPHAR register,
either channel of DU might be black screen.
Therefore, this patch prevents the black screen by setting
the PnALPHAR register to all 0.

In addition, PnALPHAR register will be released in
the R-Car Gen3 Hardware Manual Rev 2.4 (Sep. 2021).

Not sure this patches has to go with Fixes tag for stable??

Comments should start with /* on a line of its own, and you can also
reflow the text to 80 columns:

	/*
	 * In Gen3, PnALPHAR register need to be set to 0 to avoid black screen
	 * issue when alpha blend is enable on DU module.
	 */

It would however be nicer to document the exact behaviour, but the
latest version of the documentation I have access to is rev 2.3 and it
lists PnALPHAR as not available on Gen3.

Furthermore, is this really the right fix, shouldn't we instead avoid
enabling alpha-blending in PnMR on Gen3 ?

I don't have access to rev 2.4, but I got access to 
"R-Car-Gen3_Common_OPC_Customer_Notifications_V30.1.pdf" 
where it is mentioned about this issue and solution for fix
which is inline with the patch from R-Car BSP.

"The reason is that a register is not initialized by reset.
This could lead to output wrong image data of other plane or 
wrong color set from BPOR (Background plane output register)."

Avoid enabling alpha-blending in PnMR on Gen3, will it help here?

Here the issue they mentioned as "register is not initialized by reset"

It's hard to tell without knowing the exact cause of the issue. Clearing
PnALPHAR probably makes sense on Gen3 if the register exists,
independently from disabling alpha blending in PnMR. It would be nice if
the commit messsage could reference the issue described in
R-Car-Gen3_Common_OPC_Customer_Notifications_V30.1.pdf. I would also
expand the comment a little bit:

 /*
  * On Gen3, some DU channels have two planes, each being wired to a separate
  * VSPD instance. The DU can then blend two two planes. While this feature
  * isn't used by the driver, issues related to alpha blending (such as
  * incorrect colors or planes being invisible) may still occur if the PnALPHAR
  * register has a stale value. Set the register to 0 to avoid this.
  */

I'd write 0 instead of 0x00000000 to match the rest of the driver.

Would you mind sending a v2 with these changed and an expanded commit
message ?
