I haven't come across a CSI-2 connected camera without some kind of
blanking configuration capabilities. Even if there was one, you couldn't
configure blanking from the receiver side.

Please document that the data-lanes property is required, and which values
are possible.

Does this device write the image data to system memory, or is it another
device? If there's another one, then you should probably have another port
to describe that connection.
