Yes, lets merge what we have till now, it will be way easier to improve
on it once it is part of the mainline.

BTW, I have (had) patched VBS working almost without problems, when it
comes to it I'll dig it.

IIRC I checked what Nokia kernel does, and according to my vague
memories the frequency was the same. Still, it seems the problem is in
ISP, it has some very fragile calculations. Yet again, having main
camera merged will ease the problem hunting.
