I've pushed the code into the v4l_experimental section of our Mercurial 
repository.  From there, we can take a look at it, and fix it up for 
compatability with newer kernels.

I've marked the code as being authored by Andreas Monitzer (cc added).

Andreas, if you have any updates to this driver, please feel free to 
submit patches.  If you are hosting a newer version of it elsewhere, 
please keep us informed, so that we can have this added to a future kernel.

Jouke, I will email you again to let you know when it is ready to be tested.

Thank you for submitting this.

Cheers,

Michael Krufky
