Is anybody using surround sound straight from the built in mike on their camcorder or is it just a gimmick?

As it only appears on a few consumer devices, I imagine that it will just be a passing fad, even more so than consumer '3D' offerings. With footage shot at any practical soundstage, surround playback processing is probably just as effective, doesn't produce a non-standard format to interfere with your workflow, and can be turned on and off at will during playback.
