And it doesn't have support for the OV2640.

The kernel tree is the right place to merge the patch.

Ashwin, if you forward the patch to me and if it looks clean,
we'll be happy to include it in our tree. We probably won't
want to include it in the default kernel configuration, since
it's clearly not widely used.

Are you using another KLT camera module for the OV2640?
How difficult is it to glue up to the SABRE Lite/Nitrogen6X?

Please advise,
