Yes, and that one :)

We should definitely reuse the drivers that are already in there for
the TCON and HDMI parts.

I'd have to look at the exact amount of code that would be needed to
support the new display engine, but I guess if it's big, then a
separate folder makes sense, if it isn't, then putting it in sun4i
makes sense (but I'm reluctant to renaming it to sunxi).
