Details

Most of RPi's camera code runs on the VideoCore in a proprietary blob.  However, the interface to it through vchiq is open source

https://github.com/raspberrypi/userland

We should be able to import that code, build the relevant bits for gonk, and then wrap those pieces up inside a camera HAL interface.

One potential problem is that gecko expects to have camera previews wrapped in gralloc IIRC.  But gralloc isn't working 100% as-is in gecko now when there's no GL.
