The "I2C gating feature" seems to be related to the REQUEST_ENABLE_VIDEO
firmware call. If the same hardware with same firmware does not show this
behavior with your reference drivers, are there other parameters in your
reference REQUEST_ENABLE_VIDEO call?
Maybe this I2C gating is done externally via some gpio pins?
(Without schematic, datasheets and firmware code it is difficult to get
the big picture.)

Sorry for asking again. Maybe you can solve tuning and frontend status
problems by "simply" changing the firmware call parameters. If I can
be helpful in any way, don't hesitate to ask.
