CMOS camera interface on ARM

I am working on ARM9 based linux platform for Embedded devices. I need to interface a CMOS image sensor (cmos camera) to the ARM microcontroller. The microcontroller I use does not have a camera or image sensor interface.
So, I am trying to interface the data lines of camera to the GPIO lines configured as input and the synchronization and clock lines of camera to the external interrupt lines of the controller, so that data can be read out at specific times. Is there any generic driver available in linux for this implementation. The linux version I use is 2.6.21.

Thank You.

i think you should go with "rt linux" first , coz using android ll invite much more difficulties; further, rt-linux forums can provide almost 90% of the help you need. . . . .
