Because you've only configured the source pads,
and not the sink pads. The ipu_csi source format is
dependent on the sink format - output crop window is
limited by max input sensor frame, and since sink pad is
still at 640x480, output is reduced to that.

Maybe I'm missing something, is it expected behavior that
a source format should be automatically propagated to
the sink?

right, need to fix that. Probably by poking the attached
source subdev (csi or prpenc/vf) for its supported formats.

yes, need to implement g_frame_interval.

It's hard to say what is going on there, it would be great if I could get my
hands on a Nitrogen6X with the tc35874 to help you debug.
