errr, okay

Here's my viewpoint on this. Although it's nice to add new functionality 
to your kernel and this module patches your current kernel sources 
correctly, it would become unportable/unmaintainable if you even add 
only one other module to your moonbase that does this very same trick.

We (as in distro maintainers) are better off with:

1) people writing kernel modules that can be compiled outside the kernel 
tree (alsa-driver, hostap-driver etc etc)

2) a patchset that we can possibly include to the proper kernel (for 
instance, linux-2.4-agr)

anyway I hope your webcam works nicely now ;^)
