I'm not talking about the video bus switch, but about omap3isp.
omap3isp must update the buscfg registers when it starts streaming
instead of at probe time. I just checked and it actually seems to do
so already. So the problem is only updating the buscfg inside of
ccp2_s_stream() before writing the device registers. See next
paragraph for more details.

isp_of_parse_node_csi1(), which is called by isp_of_parse_node()
inits buscfg using DT information. This does not work for N900,
which needs two different buscfg settings based on the selected
camera. I suggest to add a callback to the subdevice instead.

So something like pseudocode is needed in ccp2_s_stream():

/* get current buscfg */
if (subdevice->get_buscfg)
buscfg = subdevice->get_buscfg();
buscfg = isp_of_parse_node_csi1();

/* configure device registers */

This new callback must be implemented in the video-bus-switch,
so that it returns the buscfg based upon the selected camera.

If you have working camera you have the CCP2 DT patches in your tree.
They are not yet mainline, though. As far as I can see.
