I briefly discussed with with Sebastian.

Do you think the elusive support for the secondary camera is worth keeping
out the main camera from the DT in mainline? As long as there's a reasonable
way to get it working, I'd just merge that. If someone ever gets the
secondary camera working properly and nicely with the video bus switch,
that's cool, we'll somehow deal with the problem then. But frankly I don't
think it's very useful even if we get there: the quality is really bad.

The OMAP 3 ISP has got an MMU, getting some contiguous memory is not really
a problem when you have a 4 GiB empty space to use.

I wonder if something else could be the problem. I think the data rate is
higher in the 5 MP mode, and that might be the reason. I don't remember how
similar is the clock tree in the 3430 to the 3630. Could it be that the ISP
clock is lower than it should be for some reason, for instance?

Kind regards,
