Hi Lad,

Thanks for your work.

I'm afraid this is not the right solution. The rcar-csi2 driver uses the 
v4l2-async framework to do endpoint matching instead of node matching.  
This is needed as it needs to work with the adv748x driver which 
register it self in v4l2-async using endpoints instead of nodes. The 
reason for this is that from a single DT node it creates multiple 
subdevices, one for each endpoint IIRC.

Without this patch the two CSI-2 receivers on R-Car M3-n registers the 
two following 'paths' in v4l2 to be able to find the two subdevice CSI-2 
transmitters created by the ADV748x.

rcar-csi2 fea80000.csi2: '/soc/i2c@...d8000/video-receiver@...port@...ndpoint'
rcar-csi2 feaa0000.csi2: '/soc/i2c@...d8000/video-receiver@...port@...ndpoint'

With this patch applied it registers the following which can't be found 
as they are not present in the v4l2-async list of subdevices (as they 
are registerd as above).

rcar-csi2 fea80000.csi2: '/soc/i2c@...d8000/video-receiver@70'
rcar-csi2 feaa0000.csi2: '/soc/i2c@...d8000/video-receiver@70'
rcar-csi2: probe of feaa0000.csi2 failed with error -17

This patch may unlock your use-case as it's a known problem that 
endpoint and node matching do not mix. But it will break the already 
upstream use-case and for that reason, I'm really sorry about this.

The real solution to this problem IMHO is to make all of v4l2-async 
operate using endpoint matching or possibly some kind of fallback to 
node matching if no endpoint can be found. Never the less some work is 
required in the v4l2-async core to sort out node and endpoint matching
