RPi Camera on i.MX6Q SABRESD

I want to connect a Raspberry Pi Camera (RPi Camera (F) - Waveshare Wiki ) to the i.MX6 SABRESD board.

For this I want to use 3-Lane-CSI-Interface on the board, which is normally not populated. I managed to connect the camera to the three lanes (I'm pretty sure, that I connected it right) and supplied it with 3.3V. See the attached Image for details, the wire leading out of the Image connects to 3.3V.


But now I simply have no clue, how to activate and route the CSI Interface for the camera in device tree. I googled a lot, but did not find much. I already tried something, but (as I expected) didn't get it to work.

I attached the (decompiled) device tree to this thread. Hopefully you can read something.


With this device tree and the advisions here:

u-boot on the i.MX6 sabre sd platform in a few commands

Linux on the i.MX6 sabre sd platform in a few commands

I was able to get Debian 8 with Linux 4.5 (and even KDE) running on the SABRESD.


What do I need to activate the CSI-Interface in Devicetree. Do I have to patch the Kernel somehow? Or am I doing something terrible wrong?
