Looking around the docs, there doesn't seem to be anything related
to MCLK within the CSI section.
Furthermore, camera sensor bindings, such as for the OV5640, in fact
do have a property for a reference clock, which is called XCLK or
Since the clock is already exported from the CCU, I suppose it's
just a matter of referencing the clock from the camera node, with
the proper pinctrl for that pin.
So to summarize, just ignore my comment about the missing MCLK. :)
