As far as I understand it, 19.2MHz is requirement for the sensor mode
that currently defaults to. Some modes require higher clock speeds
than this however.

So your suggestion is that we remove all clocks-rate properties, and
replace the clk_get_rate() calls in the driver with clk_set_rate()
calls for the desired frequencies?
