Ccing Boris, who's been doing work on the async update path.

Take a look at vc4_plane_setup_clipping_and_scaling(state) -- that has
the corrections necessary for negative x/y.  We're calling that too late
(through the avc4_plane_atomic_check() path) for this function's usage
of the offsets[].

Since it affects the computed src_w/h, we'd have to update those as well
in our async update.  Our async update is racy in a way that makes me
uncomfortable -- the HVS could process our display list at any point in
our writel() sequence, which is not very atomic.  Maybe we should be
using a double-buffered HVS display list per element, and then have the
main display list jump into each element's current display list and back
out, so that we can do async flips to new plane state by just commiting
a single writel() to the new HVS display element list.
