Looks like sequence posted in TRM need to be updated clearly for proper 
MIPI CAL start and wait.

Correct steps should be like below

1. Set up CSI registers for use case such as number of lanes, virtual  
channel, etc.
2. Initialize and power up CSI CIL interface
3. Program MIPI CAL bias pads, cal configs, cal control registers and 
enable calibration start
4. Power up camera through the I2C interface and start sensor streaming 
through the I2C

Note: All sensors might not leave pads in LP-11 state as sensor may be 
power down when not in use.

So start streaming prior to checking for calibration done status as 
LP-11 -> HS transition happens during sensor stream and calibration 
logic can apply results to pads and update done status,

5. Wait for done signal from calibration logic

6. perform frame capture thru VI
7. Frame done, CSI goes back to stop state, LP11

Will work internally to correct sequence in TRM ...

In mipi driver will update as below to have mipi clk enabled till 
calibration status check is done.

Always tegra_mipi_wait() followes tegra_mipi_calibrate() in both DSI and 
CSI. So below sequence should work good.


- clk_enable mipi cal
- program mipi cal registers (bias pads cfgs, mipi cal ctrl and trigger 
calibration start)

- read mipi cal status and wait for active and done bits
- clk_disable mipi cal
