... and all panel drivers seem to be fixed now.

It was very different:

GTA04/L2804: the spi-cs-high legacy handler was broken again
L3704 & L7004: the panel driver had to be replaced by the generic panel-simple
Pyra: it was not the display driver but a bug in the pca953x gpio expander which wasn't programmed any more

There is still a minor issue with the PWM backlight for the combination of BeagleBoard Black + 4.3 inch panel
cape. It does not work for 4.19 but for 5.0 and later.
