New webcam drivers heading upstream  
Hi All,

I'm happy to report that I've managed to free some time, to work on getting more webcam drivers into the mainline kernel. I've just finished adding support for ov511 / ov518 and st6422 drivers to my gspca tree:

Covering all the cams previously supported by the out of tree ov51x-jpeg and qc-usb-messenger drivers. These drivers
will appear in the mainline kernel in 2.6.31 .

Note to people who want to give this a try (see previous blog post for compile instructions) the ov51x cams also require the use of the latest libv4l:

Time to update:

And mark a number of cams as working now :)
