Apparently CONFIG_VIDEO_SH_MOBILE_CEU was set in the old
armadillo800eva_defconfig, and used by the old board code.

While DT bindings do exist [1], some DT support has been added to the
driver [2], and this even ended up as the example in [3], this was never
enabled in the corresponding board DTS.

Nevertheless, I understand that soc_camera-based driver is obsolete, and
has been replaced by [4], but bindings for r8a7740 are lacking [5].
