Having "clock-frequency" property in DTS did not solve that. It has no
effect on actual frequency.

The frequency is either chosen by consumer (imx258) or pre-assigned from
DT, but not with "clock-frequency" property. There are generic
properties for this: assigned-clocks, assigned-clock-rates and
assigned-clock-parents.

These properties should be added to DTS if additionalProperties is
false, which is the case here... so I could add them. My DTS anyway does
not use them, as the clock is generated internally on a camera board so
I don't have a control over it.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
