ahhh...ok so I think I will have to port the mt9t112 driver to freescale's
way of doing things, namely in the drivers/media/video/mxc/capture since
freescale is not using soc_camera.

On a somewhat related question, what is this "imx-devel" branch about?:
I see all kinds of references to imx-devel and v3.x.y.imx-devel here. How
come this is all the way up to 3.8 while Freescale is still on 3.0.35.
Something doesn't seem right!
