Hi Russell,

As I mentioned, I've added code to imx6-mipi-csi2 to determine the
sources link frequency via V4L2_CID_LINK_FREQ. If you were to implement
this control and return 912 Mbps-per-lane, the D-PHY will be programmed
correctly for the IMX219 (at least, that is the theory anyway).

Alternatively, I could up the default in imx6-mipi-csi2 to 950
Mbps. I will have to test that to make sure it still works with
OV5640 and tc358743.
