CSI Test Generator Mode: Yocto on i.MX6 Sabre eval board

Does anybody know of an existing driver to enable the CSI interface Test Generator (chess pattern) mode for Yocto?  The only applicable conversation I could find on the forums is here:


Using CSI test generator mode


Which includes an demo driver attachment for the i.MX5 for an older kernel.  I started trying to port that example to the newer Yocto 3.10 kernel, but the CSI software stack has changed a bit (the I2C drivers now seem to be separate from the "platform" (mxc_v4l2_capture.c) which calls functions like ipu_csi_init_interface() as described in the BSP porting guide).




  • The Yocto documentation here (Documentation -> Linux -> Linux 3.10.53)  i.MX 6 Series Software and Development Tool R|Freescale includes i.MX_6_BSP_Porting_Guide.pdf which describes 7.1.3 Configuring the CSI Unit in Test Mode
  • That documentation gives some pointers on how to enable Test Generator mode, but is a far cry from something I can cut and paste.  Furthermore, it seems to contradict the current state of the CSI stack as I mentioned above.


I was thinking there had to be somebody who has already enabled this test mode who could share some code.
