Here is how it is used on my DT, the camera clock is a fixed crystal 24M 
clock:

+	clocks {
+		clk_ext_camera: clk-ext-camera {
+			#clock-cells = <0>;
+			compatible = "fixed-clock";
+			clock-frequency = <24000000>;
+		};
+	};
[...]
+	ov9655: camera at 30 {
+		compatible = "ovti,ov9655";
+		reg = <0x30>;
+		pwdn-gpios = <&gpioh 13 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
+		clocks = <&clk_ext_camera>;
+		status = "okay";
+
+		port {
+			ov9655_0: endpoint {
+				remote-endpoint = <&dcmi_0>;
+			};
+		};
+	};

I have followed the ov2640 binding, which have the same pins naming 
(resetb/pwdn).
As far as I see, separate single gpios are commonly used in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/media/i2c/

Yes, I saw it in your code, but as I don't have any programmable power 
supply on my setup, I have not pushed this commit.
And I also don't have a clock to enable/disable -fixed clock-, I need to 
check the behaviour when disabling/enabling a fixed clock, I will give 
it a try.
