How is the rate determined? I mean, many ISPs or CSI-2 receivers that
provide the clock are also capable of using a variety of frequencies. But
only one can be used on the platform in general.

Where does it come from if it's not in DT?

Using another frequency generally leads to failure later on as the desired
link frequency likely is not available for a random external clock
frequency.
