MIPI cameras / libcamera BoF

BoF for people interested in / working on MIPI camera support / libcamera.

MIPI cameras are cameras where there is a sensor directly connected to the laptop/tablet/phone's SoC, as typically found in smartphones but recently also showing up in x86 laptops. For these raw sensors a whole bunch of the processing and sensor control needs to be done by software (optionally with assistance from an ISP in the SoC).

This makes these cameras a lot more complex then standard USB cameras which generate ready to use video frames.
