That argument may be NULL.

I'm not exactly sure about that conclusion.

You can use clk_set_rate() if you get the frequency from DT, but we
recently did conclude that camera sensor drivers can expect to get the
frequency indicated by assigned-clock-rate property.

In other words, the driver may not be specific to a particular board and
SoC you have.

Please also read Documentation/driver-api/media/camera-sensor.rst .

This driver is for a particular device that has MIPI CSI-2 on D-PHY as the
data bus. You can assume that in the driver.

Why would you put redundant information to DT?

Yes, please.
