Indeed :)

Actually, I meant fsl,imx-capture-subsystem. fsl,imx-media-subsystem
would be fine, too. Either way, I'll be happy if it looks similar to the
other two.

Nice.

It can be added right away.

I would imagine the CSI-2 core has a high-speed clock input from the
D-PHY for serial input, an APB clock for register access (ips_clk), and
a pixel clock input for the parallel output (pixel_clk), at least.
The D-PHY will have a PLL reference input (pll_refclk?) and probably its
own register clock (cfg_clk?).

I've looked at the MIPI DSI chapter, and it looks like ac_clk_125m is
used for DSI only.

I think that makes sense.
