[media] v4l: omap4iss: Add support for OMAP4 camera interface - Core
This adds a very simplistic driver to utilize the CSI2A interface inside the ISS subsystem in OMAP4, and dump the data to memory. Check Documentation/video4linux/omap4_camera.txt for details. This commit adds the driver core, registers definitions and documentation.

+ OMAP4 ISS Driver
+ ================
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+The OMAP44XX family of chips contains the Imaging SubSystem (a.k.a. ISS),
+Which contains several components that can be categorized in 3 big groups:
+
+- Interfaces (2 Interfaces: CSI2-A & CSI2-B/CCP2)
+- ISP (Image Signal Processor)
+- SIMCOP (Still Image Coprocessor)
+
+For more information, please look in [1] for latest version of:
+ "OMAP4430 Multimedia Device Silicon Revision 2.x"
+
+As of Revision AB, the ISS is described in detail in section 8.
+
+This driver is supporting _only_ the CSI2-A/B interfaces for now.
+
+It makes use of the Media Controller framework [2], and inherited most of the
+code from OMAP3 ISP driver (found under drivers/media/platform/omap3isp/*),
+except that it doesn't need an IOMMU now for ISS buffers memory mapping.
+
+Supports usage of MMAP buffers only (for now).
+
+Tested platforms
+----------------
+
+- OMAP4430SDP, w/ ES2.1 GP & SEVM4430-CAM-V1-0 (Contains IMX060 & OV5640, in
+ which only the last one is supported, outputting YUV422 frames).
+
+- TI Blaze MDP, w/ OMAP4430 ES2.2 EMU (Contains 1 IMX060 & 2 OV5650 sensors, in
+ which only the OV5650 are supported, outputting RAW10 frames).
+
+- PandaBoard, Rev. A2, w/ OMAP4430 ES2.1 GP & OV adapter board, tested with
+ following sensors:
+ * OV5640
+ * OV5650
+
+- Tested on mainline kernel:
