Thank you for testing, so it appears that at least without FBUF_STRIDE
the only requirement is that the whole image size must be a multiple of
8 bytes.

Which would then cause the CSI to write past the end of the buffer?

I'd rather make sure that either the number of lines is even or the
width is a multiple of 8 bytes.

That sounds like it would work around the current code when it (at least
part of imx_media_mbus_fmt_to_pix_fmt()) should be split between i.MX5/6
and i.MX7/8 implementations. For example rounding up the stride is not
useful on i.MX7/8, it just doesn't currently hurt because imx7-media-csi
is not using bytesperline to set up FBUF_STRIDE. And certainly the
comments don't apply.

imx_media_mbus_fmt_to_ipu_image() is unused and should probably be
dropped, same as imx_media_ipu_image_to_mbus_fmt().

Maybe imx_media_mbus_fmt_to_pix_fmt should be moved into imx-media-
capture.c be passed struct capture_priv to avoid duplicating the device
type check?

imx_media_capture_device_init() could gain a new parameter (or maybe
replace legacy_api) to set the device type.

Philipp
