I have been informed by the manufacturer that the patch currently in the 
v4l tree to support the Genpix-CW3K version of the hardware will 
actually damage the firmware on recent units.  As he seems to not want 
this hardware supported in Linux, and I do not know how to detect the 
difference between affected and not-affected units, I am requesting the 
immediate removal of support for this device.  This patch removes a 
portion of the changeset dce7e08ed2b1 applied 2007-08-18 relating to 
this specific device.
