close it until the problem is fixed in the mainline.
Comment 1 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2012-02-22 21:04:36 UTC
All USB bugs should be sent to the linux-usb@vger.kernel.org mailing 
list, and not entered into bugzilla.  Please bring this issue up there,
if it is still a problem in the latest kernel release.
Comment 2 Maciej Rutecki 2012-02-23 13:43:30 UTC
This bug is used only for tracking all regressions in _one_ place with reference to report (usually marc.info). You set it as "invalid" because it should be "not entered into bugzilla"?! If true, I think that it is not right, but you decide.

Comment 3 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2012-02-23 16:33:23 UTC
Oops, sorry, I didn't mean to close this one, my fault.

Reassigning to the correct group, it's not me.

Two problems here, but they seem to be all fixed for me:

1) kernel api for mapping controls changed and userspace had to be updated (fixed in latest libwebcam)

2) missing product_id in XML file for the named webcam (046d:0809) (also fixed in latest libwebcam)

This works for me now in Fedora 17 using their package:


and their kernel:
