I thought you had some code to compute the correct value, although
I guess we've lost the ability to know how fast the sensor is going
to drive the link.

Note that the IMX219 currently drives the data lanes at 912Mbps almost
exclusively, as I've yet to finish working out how to derive the PLL
parameters. (I have something that works, but it currently takes on
the order of 100k iterations to derive the parameters. gcd() doesn't
help you in this instance.)
