Hmm, I'll probably defer to Jordan on this, since he has seen more
combinations over the years.

I think any integration differences would just amount to which
clks/gdsc/etc are wired up.  At least what I've seen in downstream
kgsl driver, all the things that are conditional are purely keyed to
the revision+patchlevel.

As far as revision registers, IIRC back in the a3xx days they were not
to be trusted.  I'm not entirely sure when they became trustworthy.
Last I checked, android kgsl driver was not using them.
