Yes, it does, thank you! I didn't expect the necessity for any manual
setup on this level due to this sentence in the documentation:

I hence assumed there is a fixed mapping that is partly derived from DTS
information etc. Anyway, this seems to work now, so thanks a bunch for
the pointer!

Another thing that confused me for a while is the CCI driver, which also
exposes media pads. I have the cameras connected to a regular I2C bus
however, and it seems to work fine. That just leaves the question why
this CCI driver exists at all.

I also have some more questions, but they are even more platform
specific, so I'll rather post them in the 96boards forum.

Thanks again!
