There's an open comment from Geert on this series.
I'll resend, then I guess it can be collected.

I would have loved to hear from them on this and other media patches
which are sh-related. It hasn't happen, and as for the previous patches
removing usage of the old ceu driver for SH boards, I guess this can go in
through the media tree. But I let Hans decide how to handle this.

My understanding was that Hans preferred to do it after all
dependencies are moved away from soc_camera.

Maybe at ELC-E we should have a status-check and decide how to move
forward with soc_camera deprecation.
