That part is indeed meant to add support for VC, but on top of that
series I recently sent:
"[RFC 0/5] media: Implement negotiation of CSI-2 data lanes"
where support for the negotiation of CSI-2 data lanes is implemented.

As you can see it's still RFC, so I would apreciate any input you
might have :)

Thanks
