Because there are not multiple windows and driver sees only single window as you mentiond, 
Only 'struct s3c_fb_pd_win mini6410_fb_win[0]' should be used and 
'struct s3c_fb_pd_win mini6410_fb_win[1]' should not be used.
s3c_fb_pd_win[0] means window 0 of FIMD IP, s3c_fb_pd_win[1] means window 1 of FIMD IP.

Therefore, if mini6410_fb_win[0] and mini6410_fb_win[1] are included, it means that
2 windows of FIMD IP are used in single LCD.

If you want to support multiple LCDs, you should use struct s3c_fb_platdata[0], struct s3c_fb_platdata[1],
because 'struct s3c_fb_platdata' means LCD panel.

If you understand the purpose of s3c_fb_platdata and s3c_fb_pd_win, you should do, at least, as below.

static struct s3c_fb_pd_win mini6410_fb_lcd0_win[] = {
	{
		.win_mode	= {	/* 4.3" 480x272 */
			.left_margin	= 3,
			.right_margin	= 2,
			.upper_margin	= 1,
			.lower_margin	= 1,
			.hsync_len	= 40,
			.vsync_len	= 1,
			.xres		= 480,
			.yres		= 272,
		},
		.max_bpp	= 32,
		.default_bpp	= 16,
	},
};

static struct s3c_fb_platdata mini6410_lcd_pdata[0] __initdata = {
	.setup_gpio	= s3c64xx_fb_gpio_setup_24bpp,
	.win[0]		= &mini6410_fb_lcd0_win[0],
	.vidcon0	= VIDCON0_VIDOUT_RGB | VIDCON0_PNRMODE_RGB,
	.vidcon1	= VIDCON1_INV_HSYNC | VIDCON1_INV_VSYNC,
};

static struct s3c_fb_pd_win mini6410_fb_lcd1_win[] = {
	{
		.win_mode	= {	/* 7.0" 800x480 */
			.left_margin	= 8,
			.right_margin	= 13,
			.upper_margin	= 7,
			.lower_margin	= 5,
			.hsync_len	= 3,
			.vsync_len	= 1,
			.xres		= 800,
			.yres		= 480,
		},
		.max_bpp	= 32,
		.default_bpp	= 16,
	},
};

static struct s3c_fb_platdata mini6410_lcd_pdata[1] __initdata = {
	.setup_gpio	= s3c64xx_fb_gpio_setup_24bpp,
	.win[0]		= &mini6410_fb_lcd1_win[0],
	.vidcon0	= VIDCON0_VIDOUT_RGB | VIDCON0_PNRMODE_RGB,
	.vidcon1	= VIDCON1_INV_HSYNC | VIDCON1_INV_VSYNC,
};

Each struct means:
  mini6410_lcd_pdata[0]: 4.3" 480x272 LCD
  mini6410_fb_lcd0_win[0]: window 0 used for 4.3" 480x272 LCD

  mini6410_lcd_pdata[1]: 7.0" 800x480 LCD
  mini6410_fb_lcd1_win[0]: window 0 used for 7.0" 800x480 LCD

In this case, 4.3" or 7.0" LCD can be selected using mini6410_lcd_pdata[], instead of selecting mini6410_fb_win[0] or
mini6410_fb_win[1].

My point is that 's3c_fb_platdata and s3c_fb_pd_win should be used exactly'.
