I'm not talking about Exynos here but about these libraries which use peek/poke interface to access camera.
Do you mean someone actually bought phone because it contained proper implementation of peek/poke interface from 30 years ago? News to me.
Perhaps you imply that this was purposefully inserted as some kind of backdoor and the person in charge receive huge bribe? That's pretty heavy accusation.
No, I doubt it's anything that sinister. More likely then not someone just made it because it solved their immediate problem and they refused to even think for a second about consequences.
