This commit makes the video subsystem code cache aware.

Sorry, I still have a question. Does this 'dst' address get used as
the actual LCD frame buffer on your board, or is it just copied to the
frame buffer?

I must admit, that I've misunderstood the LCD code a bit. Reply to this
post from Anatolij helped me.
The buffer (dst) is only the "internal" buffer from which we are
assigning BMP data to actual frame buffer area. Then only the frame
buffer (pointed by fb pointer) area needs cache flush (which is done at
lcd_sync()).

To sum up - this patch shall be dropped.
However the second patch - 

[PATCH 2/2] video:cache:fix:trats: Enable dcache flush for TRATS
board's LCD subsystem

is crucial to fix the BMP image display distortion.

OK that makes sense, thanks.

Yes I agree.
