Re: soc-camera driver for i.MX25
Thanks for your interest!
Nice, thanks for the patch! Now, you'd have to formalise the submission -
add your Signed-off-by line, provide a suitable patch description.
Ok. That sounds like the easy part ;)
I already suspected that I have to update it :D Currently I'm using a 2.6.31
kernel that has been patched with a BSP from the board supplier. So, I have to
first update these patches in order to be able to run my system with a current
kernel,I guess. I will try that ...
importantly, it certainly has to be updated for 2.6.32 and 2.6.33 - the
biggest change since 2.6.31 has been the conversion to the v4l2-subdev
API, and a smaller one - the addition of the mediabus API.
Thanks for your encouraging answer. I never before submitted a driver and any
help is highly appreciated.
For a single
driver these are not very big changes, I could help you with them, but you
certainly would have to re-test your setup with the current kernel. Would
you be able to do that? And then, of course, we'd also have to pass your
driver through the usual review rounds.
