IMX6 - Parallel Camera driver for FPGA

Good evening,

I am working on connecting a FPGA module which deliver a YUV video signal to the IMX6q. I need to connect it using the parallel port. I am using the IPU0 + CSI0 and I have modified the IOMUX register to activate the parallel way. I am using a kernel based on the 3.14.53 release.

I have read the v4l2 driver, some ov5640 driver but none of them provide me some information regarding the connection of a component which does not answer to I2C. My FPGA is only sending me data in a particular format, I do not intend to change any configuration, it cannot answer to any request. 

I understand the basic of the video configuration but for the detection part, I am stuck. I don't understand how to make the connection from /dev/video0 to the FPGA without I2C. Does a hard coded configuration will work ?

Is there anybody that can give me some help on this part ?
