*- I have these displays available for testing.

*- FPS is measured using debug output modprobe fbtft_device name=... debug=$((1<<5)).
Run a few seconds of a full screen movie, then dmesg
The numbers are the maximum I have been able to push it. Not what you get with default values. See Performance for details.

name=sainsmart32 The display was tested with 150mm (6") jumper wires and worked fine.
name=sainsmart32_fast gave random glitches and ultimately the display goes white.
A big putoff is that the driver uses 50% of the cpu to keep up with a fullscreen movie (using top it shows as a kworker thread).
It should be possible to offload the cpu by using DMA to drive the GPIOs.

The version from eBay offers three different driver IS's,S6D02A1 / HX8353 / ST7735. 2 separate items from 2 different sellers (on different sites) both run using the HX8353.
