Agree with you but my question was, whether I could document the supported
mode in bindings or not! I have seen comments from Rob in the past that the
binding should not document the limitations of the driver. But anyway, one
can infer from the current binding that only CSI2 is supported for now, it's
just stating it explicitly makes me doubtful!

Agree but CSI2 host will need this informtion, right? Please correct me if
I'm wrong!

Ack. Sensor works with 2/4 lanes but the driver only handles 4 for now. Will
add the check in driver.
