Add rst document to describe the i.MX7 media driver and also a working example
from the Warp7 board usage with a OV2680 sensor.

+i.MX7 Video Capture Driver
+==========================
+
+Introduction
+------------
+
+The i.MX7 contrary to the i.MX5/6 family does not contain an Image Processing
+Unit (IPU), because of that the capabilities to perform operations or
+manipulation of the capture frames is less feature rich.
+
+For image capture the i.MX7 have three units:
+- CMOS Sensor Interface (CSI)
+- Video Multiplexer
+- MIPI CSI-2 Receiver
+
+::

+reference manual [#f1]_.
+
+Entities
+--------
+
+imx7-mipi-csi2
+--------------
+
+This is the MIPI CSI-2 recevier entity. It has one sink pad to receive the pixel
+data from MIPI CSI-2 camera sensor. It has one source pad, corresponding to the
+virtual channel 0. This module is compliant to previous version of Samsung
+D-phy, and support two D-PHY Rx Data lanes.
+
+csi_mux
+-------
+
+This is the video multiplexer. It has two sink pads to select from either camera
+sensors with a parallel interface or from MIPI CSI-2 virtual channel 0.  It has
+a single source pad that routes to the CSI.
+
+csi
+---
+
+The CSI enables the chip to connect directly to external CMOS image sensor. CSI
+can interfaces directly with Parallel and MIPI CSI-2 buses. It has 256 x 64 FIFO
+to store received image pixel data and embedded DMA controllers to transfer data
+from the FIFO through AHB bus.
+
+This entity has one sink pad that receive from the csi_mux entity and a single
+source pad that route video frames directly to memory buffers, this pad is
+routed to a capture device node.
+
+Usage Notes
+-----------
+
+To aid in configuration and for backward compatibility with V4L2 applications
+that access controls only from video device nodes, the capture device interfaces
+inherit controls from the active entities in the current pipeline, so controls
+can be accessed either directly from the subdev or from the active capture
+device interface. For example, the sensor controls are available either from the
+sensor subdevs or from the active capture device.
+
+Warp7 with OV2680
+-----------------
+
+On this platform an OV2680 MIPI CSI-2 module is connected to the internal MIPI
+CSI-2 receiver. The following example configures a video capture pipeline with
+an output of 800x600, and BGGR 10 bit bayer format:
+
+.. code-block:: none
+   # Setup links
+   media-ctl -l "'ov2680 1-0036':0 -> 'imx7-mipi-csis.0':0[1]"
+   media-ctl -l "'imx7-mipi-csis.0':1 -> 'csi_mux':1[1]"
+   media-ctl -l "'csi_mux':2 -> 'csi':0[1]"
+   media-ctl -l "'csi':1 -> 'csi capture':0[1]"
+
+   # Configure pads for pipeline
+   media-ctl -V "'ov2680 1-0036':0 [fmt:SBGGR10_1X10/800x600 field:none]"
+   media-ctl -V "'csi_mux':1 [fmt:SBGGR10_1X10/800x600 field:none]"
+   media-ctl -V "'csi_mux':2 [fmt:SBGGR10_1X10/800x600 field:none]"
+   media-ctl -V "'imx7-mipi-csis.0':0 [fmt:SBGGR10_1X10/800x600 field:none]"
+   media-ctl -V "'csi':0 [fmt:SBGGR10_1X10/800x600 field:none]"
+
+After this streaming can start, the v4l2-ctl tool can be used to select any of
+the resolutions supported by the sensor.
