  1. [GIT PATCH for 2.6.26] V4L/DVB: Addition of UVC driver

    Linus,

    Please pull from:
    ssh://master.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mchehab/v4l-dvb.git master

    For USB Video Class (UVC) driver.

    I know that we are very late on 2.6.26 cycle. However,
    1) most of modern webcams are based on USB Video Class (UVC). So, this
    driver is important to suport those cams.
    2) This is a driver-only addition. There aren't any changes at V4L/DVB
    core. No risk of causing regressions on the already supported devices;
    3) The driver were already reviewed by V4L and USB people;
    4) The driver is already widely used, since it is merged as an
    out-of-tree driver on several distros.

    So, on my opinion, we should merge it for 2.6.26.

    Cheers,
    Mauro.

    I got a small but relevant bug at uvc Makefile.

    If you decide to apply it, please merge those two patches:

    - USB Video Class driver
    - uvc: Fix compilation breakage for the other drivers, if uvc is selected

    So, please pull from:
    ssh://master.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mchehab/v4l-dvb.git master
