It's the wrong place for the driver as a whole; it needs to move to
drivers/media/video, and the configuration option with it.  As noted,
the camera driver isn't ready for submission yet; that's on a list of
about a half-dozen things that need fixing.  There's just a bit more
stuff to separate to make that move possible.

One other thing to consider is moving via-core, i2c, and gpio to
drivers/mfd.  It's perhaps a more logical place for it, but I'm not
sure there's a lot of value in making that move.

OK.  A half-dozen plus one things to fix.

Thanks for reviewing it!

There are definitely things to fix, and I expect some of them to last
past the merge window.  But, hopefully, it's progress, and it's very
much my intention to continue to make things better.
