Thanks for writing this summary. It matches my understanding.

It is unfortunate, but it seems to me that the camera sensor has to be
tested on another platform. Regarding the CSI2 interface, as we
discussed, this IP still exists in newer SoCs so because of that I
recommend you to try to request newer hardware for future testing.

About multi-subdevice and your ongoing work with V4L2 clock / async
probing, please select a more recent hardware platform.
